IFCPF Classification Rules
The new IFCPF Classification Rules have been developed concerning the IPC Athletes Classification Code and five International Standards (Eligible Impairments, Athlete Evaluation, Protests and Appeals, Classifier Personnel and Training and Classification Data Protection).
These rules include inputs from Classifiers, the IFCPF Board, Coaches and Players, thanks to some research activities conducted in the last three years. The year 2017 has been a ‘transition’ period for application of the new rules, and opportunities for feedback by IFCPF Members, Classifiers and the Board are advisable for adapting to the new classification system. The new classification system was presented at the 2016 IFCPF General Assembly (12 November) to members.
