GBR Referees travelling to international EFC Cadet competitions are required to have a current enhanced DBS check (or the Home Country equivalent) and ensure that they are familiar with current BF welfare policies and practices.

It is strongly recommended that referees who frequently referee children attend a Safeguarding and Protecting Children in Sports course.
