New internal legal system
«Go back »Print Version


The European Handball Federation has introduced new, second legal instance.
 

New internal legal system

Following the 2010 EHF Congress in Demark and and the 2011 EHF Congress in Cologne, the EHF has introduced a new internal legal system with new legal regulations in order to offer all the handball family an updated and efficient internal legal organisation more capable to answer the needs and the values of EHF competitions.

The 2010 EHF Congress in Copenhagen (click here for the news story) adopted a motion proposing a new EHF internal legal system with the creation of a new, second legal instance; the EHF Court of Appeal. As a consequent step, the Congress also voted in favour of adapting the competence and changing the name of the existing legal body, which is now called the EHF Court of Handball.

At the 2011 EHF Congress in Cologne (click here for the Election news and here for Decisions) seven members, including a President and Vice President, were voted on to the EHF Court of Appeal, ready to work as from 01 July 2011, pursuant to the 2010 Congress decision.

Roland Schneider (SUI) Member 5

Any request for EHF legal proceedings filed with the EHF as from 01 July 2011 will be handled in accordance with the new EHF Legal System.

New EHF Legal Regulations, EHF List of Penalties and a EHF Catalogue of Administrative Sanctions were adopted. These regulations will also be applicable as from 01 July 2011. Infringements of EHF rules and regulations or disputes occurring after 01 July 2011 and brought to the EHF legal bodies will therefore be decided according to those new regulations.

To read the new EHF List of Penalties (effective from 1 July 2011) - also available in French and German - click here.

The EHF has also introduced new administrative sanctions, to read the EHF Catalogue of Administrative Sanctions (effective from 01 July 2011) click here, also available in French and German.

EHF Legal System (as of Friday 1 July 2011)

As of 01 July 2011, the EHF will offer an internal legal system with two instance level for all cases brought to the EHF. In order to put in place such a system, the creation by the EHF Congress of a new legal commission, the EHF Court of Appeal, was necessary.

The EHF Court of Appeal will examine and decide on cases in the second instance as from 01 July 2011, when the former EHF Arbitration Tribunal, renamed to the EHF Court of Handball, will examine and decide on cases in the first instance.

The basic legal path within the EHF for all cases as from 1 July 2011 will be the following:

Administrative and transfer related cases

  • First Instance EHF Office
  • Second Instance EHF Court of Appeal

Competition related and other cases

  • First Instance EHF Court of Handball (former EHF Arbitration Tribunal)
  • Second Instance EHF Court of Appeal

Other legal paths are made available and shall be used for certain cases related to EHF competitions played in tournaments which shall therefore be handled in a short period of time. This concerns the following competitions:

European Championships (Final Tournament) and IHF/EHF Challenge Trophy

  • First Instance Disciplinary Commission (officials nominated at the venue)
  • Second Instance Jury (officials nominated at the venue)

European Championships Qualification (Tournament Phase), EHF Champions League Qualification and EHF Challenge Cup (Tournament Phase)

  • First Instance EHF Delegate (of match)
  • Second Instance EHF Court of Appeal (acting as ad hoc commission)

The aforementioned legal commissions/instances are internal to the EHF. The EHF Court of Appeal (acting or not as ad hoc commission) and the Jury are therefore the last instances within the EHF Legal System.

EHF Court of Arbitration

When any of the parties to the EHF legal proceedings is not satisfied with the final decision of the EHF legal bodies, a claim may be filed with the independent EHF Court of Arbitration.

The EHF Court of Arbitration is external to the EHF, despite being created by the EHF Congress.

The EHF Court of Arbitration proceedings are handled in accordance with its Rules of Arbitration and its decisions are recognised by the EHF and binding on all parties.

A party having recourse to the EHF Court of Arbitration proceedings to solve a dispute renounces to the civil court remedies.
