FIBA Players’ Agents Certification Process
FIBA Players' Agents Licence
"On 1 September 2006 the amended Internal Regulations of FIBA came into force. They contain, under regulation H.5, the Regulation Governing Players' Agents. These regulations govern the activities of Players' Agents ("Agent(s)", who bring about or assist in the international transfer of players or coaches. The aim of these regulations is to make sure that a high standard of quality and transparency is guaranteed for the activities of players' agents and transfers in the FIBA family.
In order to implement these Regulations, a “Certification Process” has been put in place according to which:
1. Any individual wishing to act as an agent in the international world of basketball and within the FIBA family must be licensed by FIBA with a so-called FIBA Players' Agents Licence.
2. The requirements for the granting of the Players' Agents Licence by FIBA are laid down in Regulation H.5.4 of the Regulations Governing Players' Agents.
The Standard Application Form can also be downloaded from here or at www.fiba.com. *The first round of interviews and tests according to Regulations H.5.4.6 and H.5.4.7 will be conducted in Geneva on 29th and 30th March 2007 and a second round of interviews and tests will be conducted in October 2007. Agents that are interested in taking the test need to fill-in the application form and send it to
FIBA by the end of January 2007 at the very latest for the tests in March 2007 and by the end of August 2007 at the very latest for the test in October 2007
The administrative costs for interview and tests will be CHF 250 per person, which will be paid upon arrival at the test venue. Candidates will be responsible for arranging and covering their transportation and accommodation costs."
