World Boxing announce certification process for all Technical Officials

World Boxing has launched a new Initial Certification process for Technical Officials to ensure the highest standards of integrity and transparency in officiating at its competitions and tournaments.

The Certification process is based on the practices of the Paris Boxing Unit for Olympic boxing competitions and is open to all active boxing Technical Officials, including Referees & Judges (R&Js) and Ringside Doctors, who have previous international experience.

It is designed to identify the candidates with the most appropriate experience and create common standards and working practices to ensure sporting integrity.

Application Process

All active boxing Technical Officials with international experience that wish to officiate at World Boxing events, are eligible to apply for the certification by completing the Initial Certification Questionnaire (Stage 1).

Candidates are advised to complete all applicable sections based on their experience, ensure accuracy and completeness of all provided information to support the certification process and to review responses carefully before submitting to ensure all information is correct and complete as inaccurate information may result in rejection of the application.

The deadline for completion of the questionnaire is 23:59 CET, 15 July 2024.

Any applications received after this deadline will not be considered on this occasion.

This questionnaire is the first stage in the Initial Certification process for all Technical Officials. Responses will be carefully evaluated by the World Boxing Sports and Competition Committee to verify qualifications and experience in relevant Technical Official roles.

Candidates that process through the questionnaire will be invited to take online written tests, which will be conducted separately for eligible candidates of the three different groups: R&Js, Ringside Doctors, and all other Technical Official roles.

The results of these tests will determine whether a candidate is granted an Initial Certification by World Boxing.

Any active Technical Officials that do not participate in this process or do not progress beyond the questionnaire will be welcome to enroll in the full certification courses for Technical Official roles that will be offered by World Boxing in future.

Participation in these courses will be mandatory for those who wish to officiate at World Boxing events but have not been certified through the Initial Certification process.

Help & Support

To help address any questions regarding this initial process as well as the future certification courses, two online meetings will be held on 8 July 2024 at 12:00 CET and 21:00 CET to accommodate various time zones. Officials must register in advance to take part in these meetings at the links below:
