No Objection Certificate Procedure

Obtaining a No Objection Certificate from Hockey Ireland

Hockey Ireland has adopted regulations to further the fundamental sporting imperatives identified in the FIH Regulations on Sanctioned and Unsanctioned Events, by implementing and giving effect to those FIH Regulations within Hockey Ireland’s jurisdiction. To such ends, these regulations establish a procedure for an Athlete to apply to Hockey Ireland for a No-Objection Certificate confirming that Hockey Ireland has no objection to the Athlete participating in an Event organised or sanctioned by another National Association.

An Athlete whose Home National Association is Hockey Ireland who wishes to participate in one or more Events organised or sanctioned by another National Association, and who is not included by name or by category in a notice issued by Hockey Ireland pursuant to its rules and regulations must complete and submit a No-objection request form by post or via email to the following address:

Hockey Ireland, Newstead, UCD, Belfield, Dublin 4 

For attention of:  Competitions Administrator
