• Is registered and/or licensed with World Para Athletics pursuant to the relevant provisions in the World Para Athletics Rules and Regulations;

• Has been entered in a Recognised Competition where International Classification is to take place, and;

• Have provided the required medical diagnostics documentation and uploaded to SDMS.

Upon receiving the final entries from an LOC, World Para Athletics will schedule all athletes with a New (N) or Review (R) status pursuant to the above regulations. Where a classification schedule is full, licensed athletes will take priority over registered athletes.
