Guidelines for Organisers
Only competitions defined as International Sporting Events or Open National Championships (FAI General Section 3.1.3 & 4) and meeting the requirements below may be sanctioned as CIMA recognised Category 2 events.
A valid WLC event is one which:
WLC class results in an event are valid when:
WLC events are by definition FAI category 2 events and therefore must have the approval of the National Aero Club (NAC) of the organiser (The Organizing NAC)
If the event is to be held in the territory of another NAC then the organiser must also obtain authorization from that NAC. (The controlling NAC)

Sanctioning Procedure for Category 2 competitions
At least 45 days before the event, the organiser must ensure the following:
This will enable the event to appear on the FAI calendar and be publicised as a Category 2 event.
Registered events may be postponed to a later date at any time up to 48 hours before the start of the event.
By registering a WLC event, the organizer agrees:
Event organizers must provide class results within 14 days of the end of the event.
Class results must always be provided as single .csv files per class in the following format:
P1NAME is the pilot name, given name first in normal case, family name last, in upper case.
P1SLID is the FAI Sporting Licence database unique ID for the pilot.
P2NAME is the co-pilot name, given name first in normal case, family name last, in upper case.
P2SLID is the FAI Sporting Licence database unique ID for the co-pilot.
If the pilot does not have a current sporting licence, include the pilot's IOC three-letter nation code instead.
ETEAM is the numerical ID of the Elective Team of the pilot or crew, or zero if no elective team.
SCORE is the final class score of the pilot/crew in the event as calculated by the organizer's scoring system.
This is the score native to the organizer, NOT a score calculated to the WLC scoring system. WLC scoring is calculated by the WLC system.
WLC Individual, national and elective team scores
WLC Individual, national and elective team scores are calculated as a direct consequence of the results of FAI Category 2 events which are not in the direct control of CIMA and are run according to the rules published by the organizer. As such, any dispute a competitor may have concerning his results should be addressed to the organizer of the event or the organizing NAC.
The only grounds where FAI may get involved are:
In either case the complaint and detailed evidence to support it must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org within seven days of the disputed WLC scores being published. The complaint will be discussed by the WLC Working Group and either accepted or denied as soon as reasonably possible. If accepted, suitable adjustments will be made to the current standings. If denied, there is no appeal
