International Paralympic Committee to lift Russia suspension

The International Paralympic Committee will conditionally lift the suspension of the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) by 15 March 2019. The decision to reinstate the RPC’s IPC membership under strict conditions was taken by the IPC Governing Board after the RPC served a 29-month-long period of suspension and met 69 of the 70 reinstatement criteria originally outlined by the IPC in November 2016.

According to the IPC Taskforce – appointed to assist the IPC in assessing the RPC’s progress in meeting the reinstatement criteria – the one criterion that has not been met is the provision of an official response adequately addressing the findings made by Professor McLaren.
