Discipline update: Written reasons to be published for decisions in serious cases

Written reasons for decisions relating to serious discipline cases will be published as part of the launch of Basketball England’s Disciplinary Code. 

In accordance with BE’s Publication Policy, written reasons will be given to explain how the Discipline Commissions and Appeal Boards come to decisions and to outline key points considered when deciding any sanction.  

Basketball England will publish the outcomes and reasons of serious cases from across the sport, from January. The intention is to make the process, and all the factors considered when making a decision, fully transparent. 

BE provides the framework and administers the disciplinary process, but the Discipline Commissions and Appeal Boards are independent. 

They are appointed to consider cases in accordance with BE’s rules and regulations but have autonomy in making decisions. 

Decisions, suspensions and reasons will be published on a regular basis. Links to the Publication Policy, Sanction Guidelines and Disciplinary Code are also on this page. Use the button below.
