Under the provisions of the ANOC Constitution, the General Assembly is the supreme governing body of the Association of National Olympic Committees.

By facilitating and opening up a new dialogue, ANOC is committed to forging more productive and collaborative working relationships between NOCs and International Federations (IFs) in particular.
The ANOC also has a number of strong relationships with other organisations including UNESCO, and has representatives in a number of IOC Commissions, in particular, in Coordination Commissions for Olympic Games; the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA); the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS).-GNA
