31. Who is ultimately responsible for rules changes?

The Hockey Rules Board comes to a conclusion about any changes it considers desirable and prepares a report for the Executive Board of the FIH. The Executive Board will either agree the change or refer it back for further consideration by the Hockey Rules Board; the Executive Board cannot directly amend a proposed change. Thus the ultimate responsibility rests with the Executive Board – which you may be interested to know is composed of the officers of the FIH, representatives of each Continental Federation, the chairpersons of the main FIH Committees, and members elected by a meeting of all National Associations (the FIH Congress).
