BF is only required to provide qualified FIE referees to international FIE competitions if there are more than 5 fencers entered. BF are not responsible for the provision of referees for FIE satellites (outside the UK) or non nominated JWCs.
BF will provide assistance to athletes by contacting relevant GBR FIE referees in the event that 5 or more athletes have entered a non-nominated competition.
The athletes concerned must organise this between themselves and inform head office in order that British Fencing registers the referee for the competition with the FIE.
All financial arrangements are privately organised and agreed in advance by the referee and athletes. Athletes are expected to cover the expenses of the referee’s travel, accommodation and meals in line with BFs expenses policy. BF will not be responsible for any failure of financial recompense between said athletes and referee.
