ICC to start venue accreditation system for stadiums
London: The executive committee of the International Cricket Council will meet in London on Monday to discuss about the introduction of venue-accreditation system as part of its Strategic Plan during the 2011-15 period.
"The ICC has an existing approval process which was introduced in December 1997 for new international venues but there is no process for the on-going monitoring of venues," a media release issued by ICC stated,
"The proposal is that a venue will have to be re inspected and re-accredited every five years or when it undergoes major re-building or renovation."
The other routine items include updates on international umpire performances, the FTP Agreement, Medical Committee projects; the implementation of domestic anti-doping and anti-corruption codes; the ICC World Test Championship as well as Member Development.
The BCCI will be represented by IPL CEO Sundar Raman who has been named as an alternate for president-elect N Srinivasan.
