Disciplinary Cases

British Rowing is responsible for the management of disciplinary cases within the sport

The purpose of British Rowing’s Disciplinary and Grievance procedures are to provide clear and uniform guidelines / rules across the sport for handling disciplinary cases.

Members who sign up to British Rowing are expected to adhere to their club’s codes of conduct.  Competitive members are required to adhere to British Rowing’s Rules of Racing when taking part in affiliated events.

Disciplinary rules are benchmarked against acknowledged best practice of other sports’ National Governing Bodies and there is a system of regular review to ensure that we adhere to best practice and that British Rowing’s rules and guidance provide our members with a fair, robust and consistent approach to disciplinary matters.

Should you wish to report an alleged incident of misconduct contact pippa.randolph@britishrowing.org in the first instance.

British Rowing’s policies and procedures can be read or downloaded here and this page includes guidance on Whistle-blowing.

In the interests of transparency from 1st July 2016, British Rowing will list below the outcomes of disciplinary and appeal committees, unless there are exceptional circumstances in which it is considered inappropriate to publish. Such outcomes will be removed once the period of sanction has expired.
