IOC is the acronym for the International Olympic Committee and is the legal entity of the Olympic Games as well as being the administrator and regulator of all products and copyrights and transmission of the summer and winter Olympic games.

IOC is a non – governmental organization which has its headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland created by the French pedagogue Pierre Coubertin (1863-1937) in 1894 in order to restore the ancient Olympic Games in Greece as a symbol of peace and international communication.
Baron Coubertin was the first president of the International Olympic Commission until his death. Together with the creation of the IOC, one of the Olympic symbols represented in the Olympic Charter was determined: the Olympic motto citius altius fortius which means “faster, taller and stronger”.
The Olympic Charter is the rules and policies that regulate the IOC and all organizations related to the Olympic Games.
The Olympic Movement encompasses the IOC, the International Sports Federation and the National Olympic Committees but recognizes the IOC’s authority over all organizations under the Olympic Movement.
