About the Mountaineering Commission

The Mountaineering Commission deals with training standards, ethics and regulations of mountaineering. It operates through its three working groups, the Training Standards Panel and The Legal Experts Working Group (LEWG) and the Traditional Values Working Group (TVWG).

It developed the UIAA Training Standards for UIAA member associations to encourage good practice in the training of voluntary mountaineering leaders and instructors.

The federation through its Ethics and Law activities is also involved in the process of writing UIAA documents on climbing and mountaineering ethics as well as monitoring and putting out discussion papers on issues such as the use of fixed equipment for climbing, particularly in vulnerable and environmentally sensitive areas.
