The Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) currently has ten Working Commissions whose mission is to give specialized advice or carry out specific tasks upon the ANOC President's request in order to assist the Executive Council in its work. Each Commission includes at least one expert per continent (two for the "Working Group") in the corresponding specialization.
The Secretary General of ANOC is an ex officio member of all ANOC Commissions and Working Groups.
The Commissions report on their activities at each ANOC General Assembly. The tasks they are currently assigned were defined by the 44th Executive Council meeting held on 25 October 2005 in Lausanne.
