UEFA's Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body consists of a chairman and nine members.
The Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body has jurisdiction to rule on disciplinary issues and all other matters which fall within its jurisdiction pursuant to the UEFA Statutes or regulations adopted by the UEFA Executive Committee.
The Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body shall, as a rule, reach decisions in the presence of all its members, but is entitled to take a decision if at least three of its members are present.
The chairman of the Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body, one of its vice-chairmen or one of its members acting as ad hoc chairman may make a decision as a judge sitting alone if the sanction is limited to a warning, a reprimand, a fine of up to €45,000, a player suspension or a suspension from carrying out a function for up to three matches, as well as in urgent or protest cases.
In particularly urgent cases (especially regarding admission to, or exclusion from, UEFA competitions) the chairman can refer the case directly to the Appeals Body for decision.

Friday 18 September 2015 18.00CETThe UEFA Appeals Body has upheld the one-point deduction imposed on the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) and ordered that the HNS play its next two home matches in UEFA competition behind closed doors. The Appeals Body met yesterday, following an appeal lodged by the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) against the decision taken by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) on 23 July 2015, in relation to the racist behaviour (Art. 14 of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations) that occurred during the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group H match between Croatia and Italy, which was played in Split on 12 June 2015. The appeal by the HNS was rejected, and the original decision of the CEDB has been upheld. The CEDB had decided to impose a deduction of one point on the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) for the qualifying competition of the 2014–16 UEFA European Football Championship. The HNS has also been ordered to play its next two home matches in UEFA competition behind closed doors, and ordered not to play any of its remaining qualifying games at the Stadion Poljud in Split. In addition, the HNS has been fined €100,000. This decision is final.
