BAFA Regulatory Department


The BAFA Regulations

The BAFA Regulations incorporate the previous BAFA Disciplinary Code and the existing "Rules on Member Organisations", both of which last underwent major revision in 2008. To those have been added regulations on registration and safeguarding, a procedure for resolving disputes against the decisions of competition authorities (e.g. leagues), and revised appeal procedures.
