The FIH is in the course of setting up a new procedure for dealing with disciplinary matters/disputes.
Disciplinary offences on the field of play at an FIH event are normally dealt with by the Tournament Director (TD). It is proposed that all other disciplinary matters or disputes (which were previously dealt with by committees or by Executive Board) should be dealt with by a Disciplinary Commissioner (DC).
These matters will include breaches of the FIH Statutes and Bye-laws, breaches of Tournament Regulations, FIH Code of Conduct, Code of Ethics, Breaches of the Anti-doping Regulations and any other matters referred by the FIH CEO.
The DC will be responsible for investigating, arranging any hearings or calling for any representations, adjudicating (as the judge of first instance) and reporting his/her decisions to the FIH CEO.
In most instances there will be an appeal available from the decisions of DC to the FIH Judicial Commission.
It is envisaged that DC will have a legal/judicial background, coupled with some knowledge of the sport of hockey.
The candidate appointed will have an input into the setting up of the new procedures and into the drafting of a document (ultimately to be approved by the Executive Board) setting out the Standard Procedures to apply to matters being dealt with by the DC.
Speed of decisions is important. DC will normally be expected to have sent his/her decision, in writing, to FIH CEO, within 28 days of a matter being referred.
The position will be part-time, working from the DC’s home/office, but is expected to involve, on average, up to 4 hours of work per week.
The DC will be an independent (judicial) official, but administratively will report to the FIH CEO. DC will administer (from home) the matters referred to them and will not have access to secretarial assistance from FIH staff.
The successful candidate will be paid an honorarium, plus expenses.
