Sports infrastructure in the CID

The Conference Border of sport is given the existing sharing, the natural place of encounter between the CSD and CCAA, since they are the top players in legislative matters.

Traditionally, sporting infrastructure has not been the subject of debate between the two Administrations. However, the wide variety of initiatives that are being carried out since CSD have caused that this field is becoming more prominence, both in their general aspects, such as legislative and in the specific projects developed and presented in this area.

It is clear that are the main protagonists CCAA in legislative dictates, given the current system of competence, but it is also true that the CSD cannot set aside a matter of such importance. Therefore, continuing with the principles and fruits of the project MAID, are published the results of the project for the introduction of a system of risk management in sporting facilities, involving the CCAA and municipalities and is available to all the applicatifs necessary for a first test of risk assessment.

It is available the publication done in collaboration of FEMP that revolves around three aspects; writing manuals of good practices (for sports facilities and material resources, human resources and customers and users), support for the drafting of sheets of Technical Requirements (for indoor sports pavements, artificial turf and sporting equipment), and support for the drafting of plans directors of Sports facilities.
