					Players and Match Officials Area - Minimum standards
Effective July 2006
In order that National Boards, stadium managers and other interested
parties are made aware
of the measures recommended by the ICC to combat corruption, it is
essential that they be
provided with a minimum standard for players and match officials areas,
approved by the
ICC Board, from which they can work.
It must be understood from the outset that these recommendations are not
designed to be
draconian or to isolate players from genuine fans nor the public in
general, but should be
viewed as one part of the ICC’s anti corruption strategy.
1 The Players and Match Officials Area is defined as follows:
• The dressing rooms
• External match viewing areas
• TV/Third Umpire room
• Match Referee’s room
• Players’ and Match Officials’ Dining Areas
• Other areas as identified by the ICC Regional Security Manager
The Players’ and Match Officials Areas must have a simple and easily
recognizable accreditation system
Passes allowing access to the Players and Match Officials Areas must be
distinctive and easy to read
It must bear the photograph and the name of the person to whom it is
issued
The provision of passes is the responsibility of the home board, which
must make
adequate arrangements for speedy replacement of damaged or lost passes.
A comprehensive list of passes and the person to whom they have been
issued
must be kept
2 Access should be restricted to players, team and match officials whose
presence in
the Players’ and Match Officials’ Area is essential. As a guide, access
should be
restricted to
a. Players
b. Team Managers
c. Coach
d. Physio
e. Team statistician
f. Team doctor
g. Local liaison officer




h.   Umpires
i.   Referee
j.   ACSU representative
k.   Home Board Media Manager
Additional passes MAY be required for others such as the following:
a. 1 or 2 members of the organizing authority
b. Dressing room valet
c.   Catering staff
d.   Security staff
Allocation of passes should be by the home board in consultation with
the visiting
team, the stadium management and the ACSU representative. The final
authority for
the issue of a pass will rest with the ACSU representative.
There must be only one entry/exit point to the players’ dressing rooms
other than
access to and from the playing area. In exceptional circumstances and
after
consultation between the home Board and the ACSU representative, it may
be
practical to have more than one entry and exit point.
Entry to the players’ dressing room and other player areas may only be
allowed with
the permission of relevant team manager
Entry to the referee’s and match officials’ dressing room and other
referee’s and
match officials’ areas may only be allowed with the permission of the
referee.
3 All persons entering the Players’ and Match Officials’ Area must wear
the
appropriate identification
4 Other than players, team and match officials all persons must wear the
appropriate
identification whilst in the Players and Match Officials Area
5 No person is allowed to enter the Players’ and Match Officials’ Area,
who is not
officially accredited, except with the specific permission of one of the
team
managers or the match referee (as the case may be) who must make the
appropriate officials aware of such permission. (such persons might
include Board
officials, ICC officials, equipment suppliers etc). Entry on an ad hoc
basis cannot
be permitted. In such an instance the team manager or referee will ensure
that
authorised visitors are issued with visitors’ identification passes.
6 The home board must provide adequate security staff to ensure that the
restrictions
on entry can be properly enforced
Staff should be of a sufficiently high calibre to control and where
necessary
prevent entry in a firm but polite manner
Security staff must be properly briefed before and during tournaments.
Their
briefings will include directions from the ACSU Regional Security
Manager.
Personnel should be instantly recognizable as security officers/stewards
At each entrance to the Players’ and Match Officials’ Area a minimum of 2
security officers/stewards should be on duty at any one time in order
that, in the
event of a query, the post is not left unmanned
A person who is authorized to make decisions and deal with queries must
supervise each dressing room security team
7 At each entrance a photograph board should be displayed bearing
duplicate
photographs of those persons to whom passes have been issued AND a copy
of
the type of pass that allows entry to the relevant section of the
Players’ and Match
Officials’ Area
8.       Mobile Phones and other Communication Devices

The carriage and use of mobile phones and other communication devices is
not
allowed within the Players’ and Match Officials’ Area or at any time
whilst the
match is underway. As a guide the carriage of mobile phones should be
prohibited on departure from the hotel until close of play on that day.
The manager of each team is exempt from the above and is allowed to carry
a
mobile phone on the understanding that it can be used by players and team
officials to make emergency outgoing calls and to receive incoming urgent
calls
for players and team officials.
The use of two way electronic communication devices (not mobile phones)
may
be used by team support staff (coach, fitness trainer, physio and doctor)
