National category referees are not authorised to referee at official F.I.E. competitions.

Nevertheless, in conformity with Article t.35 of the Rules, those referees who are officially candidates for F.I.E. refereeing exams are authorised to referee at the satellite competitions, in the year preceding the date of their exam.  The FIE refereeing exam candidates used during the competition must have an FIE fencer’s license, which is valid for the current season.
