Manager/Agents Regulations News Updates:
Update 1st February 2016 – The DRA Agents Regulations came into force at midnight 31st January 2016. This means that any person carrying out ‘Agency Activity’ as defined by the Agents Regulations must be registered. Any player using an unregistered agent to carry out such activity will be in breach of the DRA Rules and where applicable, their players contract with the PDC. Any persons carrying out ‘Agency Activity’ on behalf of a player must register with the DRA as soon as possible or the players that they represent may face sanction by the DRA Disciplinary Committee.
‘Agency Activity’ is defined as: acting in any way and at any time in the capacity of manager, agent, representative or adviser to a Player, either directly or indirectly, in any aspect of the negotiation, arrangement or execution of any kind of commercial arrangement including any sponsorship arrangement.
Update 5th January 2016 – Change of implementation date. Due to the removal of the ‘Exempted Individual’ category it has been decided to change the implementation date of the Agents Regulations to the 31st January 2016.
Update 24th December 2015 – As a result of discussions with the attendees at the meeting at the Holiday Inn, Brent Cross on 16th December 2015 and subsequent discussions with the PDC and PDPA a number of changes were agreed to the Regulations and to the declaration document.
The most significant of these was that after strong representations from those present that were supported by the PDC and PDPA, the decision has been taken to remove the ‘Exempted Individual’ category.
This means that anyone who wishes to conduct ‘Agency Activity’ as defined by the Agents Regulations will need to apply to become a Registered Agent and there are no exemptions.
Any declaration forms that have already been submitted can be replaced with the revised version.
