The Executive Secretariat is responsible for the day-to-day running of the IOC. Its general brief is to put into practice all the decisions taken by the Council of Members, to use its background knowledge to provide input for IOC programmes and activities and to make the IOC the world centre for documentation and information on the olive tree and its produce.

The activity of the Secretariat is channelled through four Divisions, plus the Office of the Executive Director. Each Division is responsible for drawing up and implementing its specific activities and for responding to Members’ needs or handling enquiries from the industry or general public.
