British Swimming Judicial Code
This page explains British Swimming’s judicial system and how the Judicial Code document is used to govern the procedures of any protests or complaints.
British Swimming’s Judicial system is in place to deal fairly with protests and complaints in relation to matters falling under British Swimming's jurisdiction, as detailed at Rule 3 of the Code.
This includes those arising from competitions promoted by or on behalf of British Swimming in England, Scotland or Wales.
British Swimming’s Judicial Code sets out procedures relating how to bring a complaint, and how it will then be processed through the judicial system.
Following approval by the February 2012 British Swimming Board, some changes have been made to the Judicial Code with immediate effect. These changes are as a result of various requests made but there are no substantive rule changes.
