UEFA's Organs for the Administration of Justice are:

• UEFA's disciplinary bodies, i.e. the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body and the Appeals Body

• the Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors

• the Club Financial Control Body

Members of the Organs for the Administration of Justice may not belong to any other organ or committee of UEFA.

Members of the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body and Appeals Body as well as the Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors are elected by the Executive Committee (from candidates proposed by the member associations) for a term of four years. Members of the Club Financial Control Body are elected by the Executive Committee for a term of four years.

Further rules relating to the UEFA Organs for the Administration of Justice are set out in the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations or in other specific regulations adopted by the Executive Committee.

Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body
The Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body consists of a chairman, two vice-chairmen and seven other members. As a rule, the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body reaches decisions in the presence of all members, but it is entitled to take a decision if at least three of its members are present. Exceptions may be set out in the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, which may provide for the chairman, or one of the vice-chairmen, or a member acting as ad hoc chairman, to hear special cases alone.

Appeals Body
The Appeals Body consists of a chairman, two vice-chairmen and nine other members. As a rule, the Appeals Body reaches decisions in the presence of three of its members. The UEFA Disciplinary Regulations may provide for exceptions and, in particular, empower the chairman or one of the vice-chairmen, or a member acting as ad hoc chairman, to take a decision in writing on appeals which are obviously inadmissible, founded or unfounded. The Appeals Body has jurisdiction to hear appeals against decisions of the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body pursuant to the Disciplinary Regulations in force from time to time. These regulations may provide that a case be referred directly to the Appeals Body in urgent circumstances, in particular regarding the admission to, or exclusion from, UEFA competitions.

Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors
The Executive Committee appoints the necessary number of Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors and designates one of them as Chief Inspector. The Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors represent UEFA in proceedings before the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body and the Appeals Body.

Club Financial Control Body
The Club Financial Control Body consists of a chairman, two vice-chairmen and the necessary number of other members as determined by the Executive Committee. The Club Financial Control Body, as a rule, reaches decisions in the presence of at least three of its members (including the chairman, or one vice-chairman, or a member acting as ad hoc chairman). Exceptions may be set out in specific regulations adopted by the Executive Committee, which may in particular empower the chairman, or one of the vice-chairmen, or a member acting as ad hoc chairman, sitting alone, to take a decision in special cases.

The Club Financial Control Body has jurisdiction to decide on issues specified in the applicable regulations as adopted by the Executive Committee.
