At the 2001 ISAF Mid-Year Meeting changes were made to the 2001 ISAF Regulations, including to the ISAF Eligibility Code.
In addition the Regulations were reformatted to be more user friendly, and as a consequence renumbered. Whilst the changes to the Eligibility Code have been previously published, the entire reformatted Regulations are now available on the site.
The Regulations have been split into relevant Sections covering the key areas of application:
Part I - Administration: includes details of who can make a submissions to ISAF, how to become an ISAF MNA
Part II - Nominations, Appointments and Elections:details how committee members and officers are nominated and appointed, and the role of Council Members
Part III - Committees: details the role and terms of reference for all ISAF Committees
Part IV - Events, Olympic, ISAF and Other:details the rules that apply at events, including nationality criteria, media rights, advertising code, eligibility code
Part V - Classes and Class Administration:details on being an ISAF Class
Part VI - Administration of Racing Rules, Equipment Rules and Race Officials:details how changes to the Racing Rules and Equipment Rules are handled, and how to become an ISAF Race Official
Part VII - Commissions and Forums
Part VIII - Standards of Conduct
It should be noted that the Sailors' Classification Code is not currently included in the ISAF Regulations and not currently mandatory, but exists as a service to provide Events and Classes with an international system of classification for sailors. Sailors can now register online at http://www.sailing.org/classification
. Events and Classes are not under any obligation to use a classification system but should they wish to do so the ISAF Code is now available. For full details, go to: http://www.sailing.org/regulations/#1
