The WDSF National Member Bodies (NMB) have been notified by the Sports Director that couples listed as "No-Show" in the standing of a WDSF World Ranking competition are henceforth subject to sanctions being taken against them after the third occurance.
Upon their third "No-Show" listing, the couples will lose 50% of the World Ranking points they have accrued with their best result achieved at the time of occurance.
At the time of their first "No-Show" listing already, the couples will be notified by email from the WDSF Office - and with a copy sent to their NMB - that the above sanction is imposed after the third.
Multiple "No-Show" listings during the same event (e.g. GOC) count as one.
