Deferral of Regulation 19.2(c)(ii) - Court of Arbitration for Sport Waiver.
In November 2002, ISAF Council approved a new Regulation 19.2(c)(ii), which requires competitors participating in the:
· Olympic Regatta
· Regional Games approved by the IOC
· Events with `ISAF' in their title
· Olympic qualification events, and
· Graded Match Racing Events
to sign the Court of Arbitration for Sport waiver.
At the present time, the actual implementation of this Regulation is being finalised. Therefore, unless otherwise stated in the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions, Regulation 19.2(c)(ii) is currently deferred. With effect from 1 September 2003, all competitors will be required to comply with Regulation 19.2(c)(ii).
ISAF will distribute full information on the requirement to sign the waiver from the Court for Arbitration in Sport to Member National Authorities and the Organising Committees of events subject to the Regulation. Full information will also be published on the ISAF website.
