Sanctions are the primary mechanism through which competitions are recognized by SSC. When SSC issues a sanction and an organizer accepts a sanction, this represents a formal agreement between the competition/event organizerand SSC.
All sanction applications must be received by the SSC Head Office at least twenty-one (21) days prior to the start of the event.
Sanctions must be applied for through the SSC Head Office by way of an electronic application form available on SSC’s website. Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
The SSC Head Office will review all sanction applications. Should any required documentation be missing the applicant will be contacted to provide additional documentation. Missing documentation must be provided to the SSC Head Office within a reasonable period; failure to do so may result in an automatic rejection of the sanctioning request. A request may also be rejected if a competition/event organizer has failed to submit required reports from a previous competition/event. The SSC Head Office has a responsibility to ensure that all technical requirements of a sanction are being met. Should the administrative review identify any inconsistencies with the technical guidelines, the sanction application is to be referred to the Competitions Development Committee for further review prior to the sanction being issued.
