The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (abbreviation: FIA ) is an international umbrella organization for the automobile and motorists based in Paris . The association was founded on June 20, 1904 as the Association Internationale des Automobile Clubs Reconnus (AIACR).
The aim of the association is to promote automobile sport and international motor transport. Frenchman Jean Todt has been president since October 23, 2009, succeeding Briton Max Mosley , who replaced Frenchman Jean-Marie Balestre in 1993 .
The organization has over 235 national member organizations in 148 countries, representing over 80 million members.
Members in German-speaking countries
The national sports sovereignty and the implementation of the FIA regulations are carried out in Germany by the German Motor Sport Federation , in Austria by the OSK and in Switzerland by Auto Sport Schweiz . These associations have the status of an ASN ( French : Autorité Sportive Nationale , holder of national sports sovereignty) with the FIA , which is equivalent to the membership status "Sport". Automobile clubs have “Mobility” (German: Verkehr) membership status in the FIA.

The association was founded on June 20, 1904 in Paris as the Association Internationale des Automobile Clubs Reconnus (AIACR).
In 1946 the Association Internationale des Automobile Clubs Reconnus (AIACR) was renamed and has since been renamed Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). FISA , spun off in 1922, was reintegrated into the FIA in 1993.
The ADAC temporarily suspended its membership in 2008/2009, as the then head of the association, Mosley , was involved in a sex scandal at the beginning of 2008.
The FIA is the umbrella organization of the worldwide motor racing and hosts, among others, the World Championships , the Formula 1 , the World Rally Championship ( World Rally Championship WRC), the World Touring Car Championship ( World Touring Car Championship WTCC) and the former World Sportscar Championship . The International Sports Act (ISG) was drawn up by the FIA and is continuously maintained by it. The important appendices in the FIA regulations, especially appendix J , are part of the ISG.
The respective ASN ( French : Autorité Sportive Nationale , holder of national sports sovereignty) are responsible for the implementation in national sports law .
FIA world championships
Not every championship hosted by the FIA can also be called an FIA World Championship. Rather, several criteria have to be met and the FIA come to the conclusion that such a categorization is in the interest of the sport. In addition to the obligation to allow FIA investigations, a criterion for this is in particular that races take place on three different continents within one season or that, if it is a one-off event, qualification opportunities for this event are offered on at least three different continents. An exception to this is the 2019/20 season, in which, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the requirement to hold races on three continents does not have to be met, as many races had to be canceled due to government health measures and it is already a challenge to run a season at all under the circumstances.
