Case law
According to article 45 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations: "The UEFA administration publishes decisions issued by the disciplinary bodies. Where such a decision contains confidential information, the UEFA administration may decide, ex officio or at the request of either one of the parties or the disciplinary inspector, to publish an anonymised version."

A significant step forward has been taken with the 2013 version of the Disciplinary Regulations from the point of view of good governance and transparency. UEFA will now publish decisions issued by the disciplinary bodies in this section.

UEFA decision on Mr. Carlo Tavecchio Today, the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has rendered its final decision concerning Mr Carlo Tavecchio, President of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC). Following a request for information made by UEFA to the FIGC, on 20 August 2014 the UEFA Chief Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector opened a disciplinary investigation regarding alleged racist comments made by Mr. Tavecchio during his FIGC presidential election campaign. At the request of the UEFA Chief Ethics and Disciplinary Inspector disciplinary proceedings were opened against Mr. Tavecchio on 29 September 2014. After having analysed the case file and the statements submitted by both parties, the CEDB has decided, based on Articles 6, 7, 14(1) and 34(5) DR [in the spirit of UEFA’s Resolution entitled European Football united against racism] and taking into account Mr. Tavecchio’s decision to immediately refrain from participating in any UEFA’s activity pending the resolution of the matter, as follows: -        Mr. Tavecchio will be ineligible for any position as a UEFA Official for a period of six months starting from the communication of this decision; -       Mr. Tavecchio will not participate in the next UEFA Congress scheduled for 24 March 2015; -       Mr. Tavecchio will organise a special event in Italy aimed at increasing awareness and compliance with the principles of UEFA’s Resolution entitled European Football united against racism. According to Article 63 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, the CEDB decision is immediately enforceable.
