11th Extraordinary EHF Congress - Decisions

The 11th Extraordinary EHF Congress took place on 29 May 2011 on the occasion of the VELUX EHF FINAL4 in Cologne, Germany.

48 EHF Member Federations, Applicant Federation Andorra and Associated Federation Kosovo were registered. Approximately 110 people were in attendance.

The EHF Congress was co-chaired by President Tor Lian and Vice President Jean Brihault; additionally the members of the Executive Committee were supported by Secretary General Michael Wiederer.

Motions

After the official opening and welcome, followed by formal procedures the following motions were presented to the congress participants and voted on by the 49 Member Federations.

Motion 1: English as official language at EHF competitions

The 11th EHF Extraordinary Congress voted in favour of the motion, as it reached the necessary 2/3-majority for changes to the EHF Statutes.

English as the common and official language for the EHF competitions and related activities was defined in order to ensure efficient cooperation between all persons involved in those competitions and activities. For this purpose, an amendment to the EHF Statutes will read as follows: “The official language at EHF competitions shall be English”.

The decision has immediate effect; the amended clause of the EHF Statutes is valid as of 29 May 2011.

Motion 2: General obligation of the organisers of EHF competitions

The 11th EHF Extraordinary Congress voted in favour of the motion, as it reached the necessary 2/3-majority for changes to the EHF Statutes.

The relationship between the EHF and the organisers of EHF competitions is now defined within the applicable legal framework. For this purpose, a new provision will be added to the EHF Statutes and will be adopted upon amendment of the wording.

Motion 3: Amendment of the Legal Regulations and the List of Penalties, Implementation of a Catalogue of Administrative Sanctions

The 11th EHF Extraordinary Congress voted in favour of the motion.

The experience of the last years in terms of legal proceedings within the EHF and the legal interpretations of the Arbitration Regulations by the legal bodies (especially ECA) show that the Arbitration Regulations including the List of Penalties needed to be updated and completed.

Therefore the Arbitration Regulations will be revised and renamed to Legal Regulations, comprising modifications of some provisions and insertion of new provisions according to the procedural needs. The List of Penalties will be revised with the insertion of new infringements and their related penalties and the revision of some penalties amounts. A Catalogue of Administrative Sanctions will be created to give a legal framework to the infringements of administrative nature.

The provisions of the attached Legal Regulations, List of Penalties and Catalogue of Administrative Sanctions will be valid as of 01 July 2011. The documents will be available on the EHF Website, www.eurohandball.com, from then on.

Motion 4: Competence to amend the List of Penalties

The 11th EHF Extraordinary Congress voted in favour of the motion, as it reached the necessary 2/3-majority for changes to the EHF Statutes.

A list of penalties will ensure the adequacy in accordance with the needs of the sport and will optimize the impact of legal frameworks for all parties involved: an efficient administrative handling of EHF competitions and a uniform implementation of the basic requirements during EHF events.

The EHF Executive Committee will be the body in charge with taking decisions on the issuance and amendment of competition regulations and the List of Penalties. Provisions regulating financial matters excluding the List of Penalties shall be passed by Congress.

The decision and the amended clause of the EHF Statutes will be valid as of 01 July 2011.

Motion 5: Competence to amend the Catalogue of Administrative Sanctions

The 11th EHF Extraordinary Congress rejected this motion, as it failed to reach the necessary 2/3-majority for changes to the EHF Statutes.

Motion 6, tabled by the National Federation of Austria: Amendment regarding the advertising rights relating to the EHF EURO Qualification Regulations

The 11th EHF Extraordinary Congress voted in favour of the motion, as it reached the necessary 2/3-majority for changes to the EHF Statutes.

The Austrian Federation proposes to the EHF Congress to assign the above mentioned rights to the National Federations and to remove the responsibilities currently assigned to national federations regarding the correct visibility of EHF advertising and product exclusivity and to remove the principle of shared income to all participating federation from the EHF Euro Qualification Regulations.

The amendments to the regulations regarding the advertising rights will be implemented accordingly taking into consideration the fulfilment of existing contracts.
