DECISIONS OF THE INTERNATIONAL F.A. BOARD
In FIFA competition matches, and in competition matches organised under the auspices of the confederations, acceptance of a football for use is conditional upon the football bearing one of the following three designations:
the official "FIFA APPROVED" logo,
the official "FIFA INSPECTED" logo,
the reference "International Matchball Standard"
Such a designation on a football indicates that it has been tested officially and found to be in compliance with specific technical requirements, different for each category and additional to the minimum specifications stipulated in Law 2. The list of the additional requirements specific to each of the respective categories must be approved by the International F.A. Board. The institutes conducting the tests are subject to the approval of FIFA.
National association competitions may require the use of balls bearing any one of these three designations.
In all other matches the ball used must satisfy the requirements of Law 2.
