ministration decides the FIVB should try to control
agents’ activity. The Legal Commission also said that
the new Medical Regulations that came into effect
January 1, 2009, must be examined by the commis-
sion in comparison with other FIVB Regulations in
order to change any possible contradictions.
Medical
The Medical Commission discussed the Doping Con-
trol Programme for 2009 as well as the FIVB Injury
Surveillance Survey in 2008 in Gstaad and the on-
going surveillance system and the potential use of
the web-based “Real Winner” antidoping education
programme.
TV & New Media
The Television and New Media Commission made
a decision to inform Referee Commission members
about a Hawk-Eye implementation plan, firstly for
use in “ball in or out” cases. The Television and New
Media Commission will recommend, if the Referee
Commission looks favourably on the plan, the use of
Hawk-Eye cameras for major FIVB competitions as
television enhancement for “ball in or out” analysis.
The Commission also proposed a separate colour
to distinguish the three-metre zone on either side
of the net and will recommend TV-friendly colour
schemes to the FIVB Executive.
Refereeing
The Referee Commission approved in principle that
an accurate sensing system and/or Hawk-Eye may
be implemented, with the proviso being that the
technical elements of such a system are accurate
and that the number of interruptions caused by the
use of the system is limited.
Rules
The Rules Commission agreed to continue to study
“four substitutions in one position”, changes to the
service rule and the “Golden Formula” for longer
rallies.
Technical
Among the decisions, it was decided that the FIVB
Technical Department is to distribute the FIVB
School Volleyball Symposium guidelines to the Con-
federations and to make the document available on
the FIVB website.
