Published: Saturday 30 June 2012, 9.44CET

The UEFA Executive Committee has approved and made official the appointment of the members of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) for a term of office ending on 30 June 2015. The CFCB recently replaced the UEFA Club Financial Control Panel.

The Club Financial Control Body (CFCB) is underpinned by an Investigatory Chamber, led by the CFCB chief investigator for the investigation stage of the proceedings, and an Adjudicatory Chamber for the judgement stage of the proceedings led by the CFCB chairman.

The tasks of the CFCB are to oversee the application of the UEFA Club Licensing System and Financial Fair Play Regulations. The CFCB can take disciplinary measures and its final decisions may be appealed directly to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.

Importantly the CFCB is competent to impose disciplinary measures in case of non-fulfilment of the requirements and decide on cases relating to club eligibility for UEFA club competitions.

The CFCB will be chaired by José Narciso da Cunha Rodrigues. A former General Prosecutor of the Portuguese Republic, Mr Cunha Rodrigues has been a judge at the Court of Justice of the European Union since 2000. He will take office as of 8 October 2012, when he leaves the CJEU.
