The FIVB Beach Volleyball Commission

The FIVB Beach Volleyball Commission members meet at least once a season (usually October or November) or whenever requested by the FIVB.

Proposals affecting all National Volleyball Federations must be submitted to the Executive Committee, to the Board of Administration and eventually to the World Congress for approval.

Proposals from this Commission to the FIVB President may nevertheless be submitted for his approval should urgent measures be taken during the season.
