We have started to implement EMS in some pilot Federations but realized that the roll-out of EMS globally takes much more time than estimated and not all Federations will be ready to use the EMS system by April 1, 2020 which is a pre-requisite for the IWWF License implementation. The EMS Steering Committee has therefore decided to postpone the IWWF License implementation to September 1, 2020 for registration to competitions taking place from January 1, 2021. Why starting from September 1, 2020: because the athletes of the Southern Hemisphere (AUS, NZL, South America, etc.) start already around this time to register for competitions held in 2021.
Consequently, we will make the registration of the IWWF License available in EMS by September 1, 2020. In a separate mail you will receive an invitation to a Conference Call organized for EMS Council Representatives (Jeff Surdej has been named for Waterski) which will give you additional information about the project status and roll-out.
