In 2008, the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) was formed by agreement between the four governing bodies of tennis: the ATP Tour; the Grand Slam Board; the WTA; and the International Tennis Federation (ITF). On 1 January 2021 the International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) was formed, subsuming the former TIU. The ITIA became the legally independent integrity organisation for all professional tennis, responsible for administering the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP). On 1 January 2022, the ITIA will also assume responsibility for the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (TADP).
The ITIA is managed by the CEO, Jonny Gray, who reports to the Supervisory Board.
