How to become a FIBA Official Commissioner?

(see FIBA Internal Regulations, Book 3, Chapter 6, articles 262, 263, 264, 265, 266)

Each national member federation has the right to choose candidates for the title of “FIBA Commissioner” from amongst its former FIBA Referees and persons active in the organisation of basketball. A FIBA Commissioner cannot be, at the same, a FIBA active Referee.

A national member federation may have an unlimited number of FIBA Commissioners.

In order to obtain the title of FIBA Commissioner, the candidates must:
- be proposed officially by their national member federation;
- participate in a Clinic for FIBA Commissioner Candidates;
- pass all official tests as established by the FIBA Technical Commission showing sufficient English language skills and knowledge of the FIBA Official Basketball Rules, the General Statutes, and the Internal Regulations.

Clinics are organised by the FIBA Technical Commission with the assistance of the FIBA Secretariat. They may also be organised by a Zone Technical Commission. In this event, the programme and the names of the FIBA Instructors conducting the clinic must be submitted to the FIBA Secretariat for approval.

The commissioner cannot be older than fifty-five (55) years of age when taking part in a FIBA Clinic for Commissioner Candidates and will not be considered a FIBA Active Commissioner after the age of seventy (70).
