The IFBSO Code of Excellence
At its 2007 Congress in Auckland, New Zealand, the Federation adopted the IFBSO Code of Excellence which stipulates transparency of entry rules, allocation of space, appeals system and waiting list rules.
Using the Code of Excellence as a basis, the criteria that follow have until now been used as entry requirements for membership and all existing IFBSO members are fully compliant with the provisions of this Code.
As of June 2014, IFBSO is offering different membership categories. Platinum and Gold Members still need to comply with the Full Code of Excellence whereas the highlighted criteria taken from the existing IFBSO Code of Excellence constitute the Basic Minimum Standard compliance with which is required for admission as Silver or Candidate Member.
