To ensure the highest quality level of scoring and reliability of competition results, the WorldCDF organization requires that any International Championship hosted by the WorldCDF and World Championships, may only be scored by WorldCDF certified scoring personnel.

Scoring Format

The WorldCDF scoring format is based on the International Skating System. Some adjustments have been made to this system to accommodate usage for all different dance types within the WorldCDF programme.
For each division, individual Judge reports are created which can be found in the Competition Results section of the WorldCDF website. These include the rules of scoring on both individual dance and overall placements.
These reports are retained on our website during the calendar year. Overviews of final results and overall rankings are retained for longer term in the Archive section of the WorldCDF website.

All names of participants in the training programme and certified scoring personnel will be published on the WorldCDF website, including their training and/or certification level. In this manner, all WorldCDF members will be able to validate and recognize the scoring personnel. Per event, it is registered which scoring personnel was active at the event and by the end of each year retention of certification will be reviewed. In case of gross negligence, willful misconduct or proven inabilities, the WorldCDF Management Team has the right to recall any certification with immediate effect.
