Regulations

Scottish Rugby : Regulatory Information

Welcome to the section of the Scottish Rugby website which provides advice and guidance in relation to regulatory matters. The regulatory section comprises two main areas:

The Scottish Domestic Regulations

The Scottish Rugby Union (Scottish Rugby) is obliged to comply with the Regulations Relating to the Game issued byWorld Rugby (the "WR Regulations”). These WR Regulations are applicable throughout world rugby and cover topics ranging from the Player Contracting through to areas such as Anti-Doping and the control of Betting within our game.

In order to reflect the unique environment of Scottish rugby, we have supplemented the WR Regulations with further Scottish Domestic Regulations (“SDRs”). We collectively refer to WR Regulations and the SDRs as being the “Regulations”.  

All those within Scottish Rugby’s jurisdiction are required to comply with the Regulations.

Advisory Information

In addition there are a range of other areas, some of which are regulated by third parties, where we are able to provide regulatory advice and support. These topics include matters such as Child Protection.

How to access the information?

On the left hand side of your screen there are a range of tabs. By clicking on a tab you will gain access to the front page of the relevant section of our website. This front page will lead you through the topic, providing you with links to related information on our website and relevant external sources.
