Athletics Canada is responsible for authorizing and recognizing Athlete Representatives (also known as agents or managers) and to confirm to the IAAF which ARs are representing which athletes.
IAAF Regulations for Athletes’ Representatives have changed. The new IAAF AR Regulations came into force on May 1, 2011. These regulations only apply to athletes ranked in the Top-30 and to athletes who choose to use the services of an authorized Athlete Representative (AR). Athletes in the Top-30 are not required to have an AR, but if they do, the AR must follow these strict regulations.
Top-30 athletes need to make sure that the representative(s) whom they wish to act on their behalf in 2014 have been duly authorized under the new IAAF AR Regulations and that their contractual arrangements for 2014 are concluded in the form of the Standard Athlete/AR Agreement. It is a breach of IAAF Rules for an athlete to use an unauthorized AR.
