The Union Européenne de Gymnastique (UEG) is pleased to herein provide you with the Directives for the 32 nd UEG Artistic Gymnastics European Championships, to be held in Glasgow (GBR) from 2–5 August 2018. These Team European Championships will be organised following the FIG & UEG Statutes, FIG & UEG Technical Regulations (TR), FIG Code of Points and relevant newsletters, FIG General Judges Rules, FIG Specific Judges Rules, FIG Anti-Doping Rules (effective 01 January 2015), UEG & FIG Medical Guidelines, FIG License Rules, UEG Media Rules, FIG Apparatus Norms, UEG Advertising and Publicity Rules, FIG Rules for Sanctioning (approval) of International Events and the UEG Accreditation Directives, FIG Code of Ethics and other Rules, Regulations and Guidelines valid from 1 January 2018 and any possible amendments by the date of these European Championships and any complements decided in the meantime. All participating Federations commit to abide by the Statutes and all UEG/FIG Rules and Regulations. Federations that fail to respect them will not be allowed to participate.
Senior and Junior gymnasts holding a valid FIG licence until the end of the competitions, and with the correct age from UEG and FIG affiliated Federations in good standings, may take part in these European Championships. An individual is entitled to only one accreditation card. If an individual has several valid “accreditable” functions, the highest function is normally selected and no substitutes may directly benefit from unused accreditations. The functions of judge, team manager and medical staff cannot be combined with any other function. As the ECh seniors and juniors are considered as one event, it is no longer possible to enter the same person in a different function, e.g. as team leader with seniors and coach with juniors. The function of gymnast may only be combined with the function of Head of Delegation. It is forbidden for someone with an accreditation to substitute his/her function with the function of gymnast (Athlete).
