(World Athletics) – World Athletics is seeking applicants for its Nationality Review Panel.
The Panel’s primary role is to decide if an athlete can represent a Member Federation based on eligibility rules and regulations criteria.
The Panel reviews and makes decisions following applications submitted by Member Federations concerning either the eligibility of an athlete to represent a Member Federation or the transfer of allegiance of an athlete from one Member Federation to another.
The Panel consists of a pool of nine members, from which three members are chosen by the Chairperson to consider the applications received from Member Federations. World Athletics now seeks applications for four positions on the Panel for appointment by the World Athletics Council in July 2022. The appointment will be for a period of four years, ending July 2026.
The Chairperson and members of the Panel will collectively have experience in the areas of governance and being on a decision-making body. Successful candidates will be appointed primarily for their qualifications and expertise. As all members will be bound by the Integrity Code of Conduct, applicants must have impeccable integrity. Shortlisted applicants will also be vetted in accordance with the World Athletics Vetting Rules.
Experience [in] dealing with eligibility and/or transfers of athletes within athletics or other sports bodies is a bonus.
