Match official accreditation needs to be renewed every four years.
During that period the match official needs to be active during at least two of the four years and also undertake various activities during those active years.  The activities are to be recorded in the Official’s Log.
During the final year of your accreditation all match officials (excluding Level 4 Referees) must also successfully pass a Laws of the Game examination.
