An online competition registration system introduced by the International Sambo Federation (FIAS) is now fully operational for events in 2017.
The system, which also includes a database showing competition results of specific athletes, was promised at the FIAS Congress in Sofia.
A detailed record of online licenses for each participant is included, as well as for judges and national federations.
This will mean there is no longer the need to bring paper copies of licences to all international events.
All information will be entered onto the database, so registrations for each individual competition will be far simpler and require just the selection of athletes from an existing list.
Reminders of deadlines for making bank license payments will also be made through the system via invoices.
This system will now be the only way to sign-up for international events including the World Championships.
Specific login details are being sent to all federations.
