The World Taekwondo Council today approved the "Hammamet Declaration" - a commitment to ensuring safe sport around the world.
Named after the Tunisian city where the Council were meeting, the initiative has seen the governing body pledge to take all "relevant measures for the prevention of injury and protection of athletes from all types of abuse".
World Taekwondo promise they will act "in full compliance with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) toolkit for safeguarding athletes from harassment and abuse in sport, and will continue to enhance its policies and regulations for safety and health of athletes".
In addition, the declaration also laimd that World Taekwondo will "ensure taekwondo serves as a tool to give hope to every corner of the world".
This includes a pledge to expand the World Cares Programme, in order to fulfil its missions of sport development.
"The safety of our athletes is our number one priority and the approval of the Hammamet Declaration reflects our commitment to do as much as possible to ensure safe sport," said World Taekwondo President Chungwon Choue.
"We recognise that a declaration is not enough; we must now turn words into actions."
Choue added: "A review of our existing policies is already underway and we will be implementing new measures over the coming months, in line with the guidance provided by the IOC."
