How to refer a case to Sport Resolutions?

To refer a safeguarding case to Sport Resolutions, whether that is for arbitration, a disciplinary process or investigation, the parties involved must consent to bring the matter to Sport Resolutions. Such agreement may be automatically incorporated into a relevant regulation, rule or contract of the referring sport organisation, or alternatively the parties may enter into an ad hoc arbitration agreement. The effect of the consent is to confer jurisdiction on Sport Resolutions to work with the parties.
