The Esports Integrity Commission (formerly known as the Esports Integrity Coalition) (ESIC) is a British-Australian non-profit organization that deals with issues involving competitive integrity in esports. They work with tournament organizers, betting companies, game developers, and other esports stakeholders to develop a unified strategy to prevent, disrupt, investigate, and punish anti-competitive behavior in esports including matchfixing, cheating, doping, and other offenses that damage competitive integrity.

In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive they have notably investigated and issued sanctions against players and coaches for abusing the Coach bug in 2020, are currently investigating matchfixing in MDL, and sanctioned players in ESEA Season 35: Premier Division - Australia for betting offenses.

For a list of players currently and previously banned by ESIC see here.
