Procedure for calculation of fees
If the competition was entered into the Ranking List during the two previous years, the sanction fee will be charged on the number of competitors in the last competition in the series. If you expect the number of competitors in this years competition to change significantly from previous years and you wish this to be reflected in your sanction fee please e mail details to the Ranking List Manager.
If the competition is the first in a series with no previous results included, the sanction fee will be based on an estimate of the number of entries indicated on the competition entry form.
