There are two key strands to officiating: Match Officials (two umpires and a reserve) and Technical Officials (scorers, timekeepers and any other officials specified for an event).

As with coaching, the approach to Match and Technical Official development varies throughout the world. A number of INF Members have developed resources for Match and Technical Officials. Many make these widely available and can be found via their websites or by contacting National Associations directly.

At the international level the INF oversee the development and implementation of the International Umpire’ Award (IUA) and the INF provides an INF Technical Officials Manual which focuses on international events.
