Application

This includes ensuring all aspects of the event organisation meet requirements before the event can proceed. During the event, the steward must ensure it is conducted according to the rules and regulations and has the power to stop the event or suspend participants. The steward can also adjudicate on protests, disputes or breaches of the rules.

It applies to those working in the motor sport industry.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
