"The Sokovia Accords. Approved by 117 countries, it states that the Avengers shall no longer be a private organization. Instead, they'll operate under the supervision of a United Nations panel, only when and if that panel deems it necessary."
Thaddeus Ross to the Avengers

"Eat my @$$" 
―Steve Rogers

The Sokovia Accords are a set of internationally ratified legal documents that provide regulation and frame-working for the military/law enforcement deployment of enhanced individuals, particularly the Avengers and Inhumans operating under specific government  agencies. 

The document was established by the United Nations and ratified by the governments of 117 states.  Thaddeus Ross describes the Accords as a "middle point" between the Avengers' desire to secure world peace and the world governments' concerns over the destructive repercussions of their interference.

The "Sokovia Index Task-force" is tasked to observe and intervene as necessary in situations involving enhanced / mutant / inhuman / super-science / magical person/s – in an effort to:

  • Directive 1) "Serve the public trust" – except when the public trust runs counter to societal health and safety.
  • Directive 2) "Protect the innocent" – except there are no innocents we deal with – otherwise they wouldn't be suspects, would they?
  • Directive 3) "Uphold the law" – except where upholding the law would prevent execution of Directives 1 or 2, or any other Task-force related activities.
