What is FIM Africa?
The Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) is an international organisation acting in all matters connected with motorcycling activities and, as such, is active in domains as varied as sport, the environment, mobility, road safety, legal affairs, and the protective and defence of the rights and interests of motorcycle users. As far as motorcycle sports are concerned, the FIM is the supreme and sole international authority empowered to control international motorcycling events organised under its jurisdiction throughout the world and as such acts as the supreme court for the settlement of disputes which may arise from the organisation of such activities, save those cases that may be submitted to the Court for Arbitration for Sports in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Continental Unions (CONU's) (such as FIM AFRICA) are bodies of the FIM. CONU's are recognised geographic subdivisions of, and are accountable, to the FIM. There are six recognised CONUs, each named according to the continent in which it is located: FIM Asia, FIM AFRICA, FIM Europe, FIM Oceania, FIM North America and FIM Latin America.
Every Federation (FMN) in the geographic area of a CONU, is by virtue of its membership of the FIM, automatically a member of that CONU.
