A Sports Commission decision 19/03/2019

Competition

General Secretary Nenad Jeftic confirms that the WDSF Sports Commission has established an Enforcement Committee.

According to Mr. Jeftic, the mission of the committee is to make the Adjudicators aware that they are accountable and could very well be made responsible for their actions. The mission includes making the Adjudicators aware that the WDSF Sports Commission is responsible to take actions against them for safeguarding our sport.

Mr. Jeftic: ”The Enforcement Committee officials visit competitions to oversee the running of the competition by the organizer, and to observe the overall conduct of the Chairperson and the Adjudicators. The committee officials identify Adjudicators, who produce scores that are way under or over the average score of the computer detection system. The officials debrief and make a group assessment and recommendation after the debriefing session. Other measures include the Chairperson’s assessment of the Adjudicators’ conduct during each granted competition.”

The enforcement debriefing team consists of a chairperson, Mr. Nenad Jeftic, and the Enforcement Officers: Mr. Michael Eichert, Mr. Glenn Weiss, Mr. Gheorghe Raducan and Mr. Alberto Rodrigues.

The task of the debriefing team is to go a step forward to enforce a practice of strict monitoring of our Adjudicators’ performance, and to:

  • identify the honest and well-performed Adjudicators 
  • identify the Adjudicators who performed below expectation either with the intention to manipulate or simply incapable of a good assessment
  • identify Adjudicators who simply use competition to make a point that they are different thus pen their assessment in an unusual manner
  • present the findings to the Sports Commission
  • make corrective recommendations such as removing Adjudicators who perform badly from the selection pool for a limited period, or long term

The Sports Commission had their meeting in Bucharest on Friday and Saturday.
