On the 10/11 June 2014 the FIFA Congress adopted a resolution to replace the then existing Players’ Agents Regulations with a new regulation titled ‘Regulations on Working with Intermediaries’ in order “maintain the integrity of the sport of football by promoting and safeguarding considerably high ethical standards in the relations between players, clubs and third parties, and thus live up to good governance and financial responsibility principles.”
FIFA therefore directed that each federation develop its own regulations to comply with its regulations that will have worldwide effect. The failure to register a transaction and comply with these requirements will be an act of misconduct and any club or player found guilty of such an offence risks the sanctions provided for in the FAZ Statutes.

All Intermediaries who are engaged in transactions involving players and clubs in their jurisdiction must be registered on the system. The information to be submitted to the engaging club includes:
The system is integrated into the existing FIFA System, thus allowing the transfer of professional players and related Intermediary involvement to be managed via one system.
We encourage all intermediaries to familiarise themselves with the FIFA and FAZ Statutes, Rules and Regulations in order to provide the best service possible to its players.
