The IIHF Rule Book applies to all IIHF Competitions and International games.
The IIHF Case Book is a supplement to the IIHF Official Rule Book. It is comprised of rule interpretations and clarifications, Referee and Linesmen guidelines, techniques and instructions. It also provides players, team officials, and the media with clarification of the playing rules. Situations often develop during the course of a game that require specific rulings or interpretations, and an attempt has been made to provide an explanation that is compatible with the spirit and intent of the rules of ice hockey, and the standard of sportsmanship that players, team officials and game officials must recognize and accept.
This online version of the IIHF Case Book and Bulletins was last updated by the IIHF on 29 Sep 2010. Any new situations not covered in the book are clarified in an IIHF Rules Bulletin prior to the start of each season. They are then incorporated in the Case Book for the following season.
