Vatanen's presidential rival is Jean Todt
FIA presidential candidate Ari Vatanen has dropped his legal action against the governing body after receiving assurances about Friday's election.
Former rally driver Vatanen is vying with Jean Todt to replace outgoing president Max Mosley.
Last week, Vatanen filed a application in a Paris court seeking safeguards over how the election will be run.
An FIA statement said: "Following a meeting to agree procedures, he has withdrawn his court application."
The Finn's battle with former Ferrari boss Todt, who has Mosley's backing, has become increasingly bitter.
Vatanen claimed many clubs around the world had told him they were afraid the vote would not be secret, and that recriminations would follow if they voted the wrong way.
Vatanen had asked that the ballot papers would be distributed randomly so that votes could not be traced back to any of the 132 individual member organisations.
The FIA originally said the envelopes the ballot papers were in would be unmarked and indistinguishable.
The procedure now will include a public official supervising the election, a private voting area for marking ballot papers and an opportunity for each candidate to present their case prior to the election for a maximum of 15 minutes.
