It is very important to get the drafting of disciplinary rules right first time. Areas of difficulty are often not discovered until the rules are challenged. As litigation within sport increases, the risk of exposure as a result of inadequately drafted rules increases. It is worthwhile looking at published rules on the websites of other NGBs to get ideas for improving existing procedures.
Remember the principle “fairness in all aspects”. Even if the wording of the rules is imperfect, sticking to this principle will minimise risk of challenge.
