Choosing to participate in the IDSF DanceSport system as described in the corresponding rules, codes, regulations and policies, carries with it an obligation to follow a set of other common rules, and to participate exclusively within that IDSF system.
The IDSF Presidium advises that athletes, Adjudicators, Chairmen and other officials are authorised to participate in all competitions listed in the "IDSF Competition Calendar" and posted on the IDSF website.
However, it is the responsibility of all athletes, Adjudicators, Chairmen and other officials to inform themselves regularly by checking these lists, in order to ensure that a competition they plan to enter or officiate in is currently listed as registered within the IDSF system. In case of doubt, please obtain confirmation in writing from IDSF or an IDSF National Member Body that a competition is registered within the IDSF system.
A competition that is not listed and registered by either IDSF or an IDSF National Member Body is presumed to be unregistered, and therefore is presumed to be outside the IDSF system. Athletes, Adjudicators, Chairmen and other officials who wish to continue to participate in the IDSF system should not participate in unregistered competitions. The IDSF Presidium may take action against any person or group associated with IDSF or an IDSF Member Body who take part in a unregistered competition in any whatever official capacity.
