RESPONSIBILITIES The responsibilities of each category of Officials are set out in the Rules. The Rules can only give a brief statement of the most important aspects of responsibility . DECISIONS There should be an acceptance that no Official should ever take an arbitrary or unilateral decision or one that ignores the views of other Officials, the Organising Committee or the Athlete . SUFFICIENCY At most Events, Officials will have to decide whether something is insufficient! The level and category of Event will be a crucial factor in this decision. It is important to remember not to compare practices at every Event to be the same as expected at a 4* Championship! The test must be : Is it safe, is it fair? Is it within the Rules?
