Accreditation Card The accreditation card is a personalized card which confers on its holder the right to take part in a World Cup Event. It establishes the identity of the card holder and specifies the access rights and other privileges of the card holder for a particular World Cup Event. Since the season 2010/2011 a FIS season accreditation card has been developed and will be issued to a select group of individuals. This card will be valid at all World Cup Events. All other individuals will need to apply for a local accreditation. To ensure branding consistency across the FIS season accreditation card and the local accreditation card, each LOC will be provided with a template that is to be used to produce the local accreditation card. The design is similar to the FIS season accreditation card but with slight modifications to allow for the needs of the LOC. Specifications of the Accreditation Card The dimensions of the accreditation card should be approximately: 12.5 x 9 cm. The card can be printed on cardboard/paper and laminated or produced directly as a plastic card. The principal elements to be visible on the card are: • The official 2013/14 FIS CC World Cup logo • The official event logo • The name of the event host and the date of the event • A recent color photograph of the card holder • Personal information about the card holder (Name, Function, Responsible Organization) • Numerical codes (1 -16) determining the zones to which the card holder is entitled to access. If the LOC has additional access areas they can be added in this section • Sponsor recognition through logos at bottom of the card (front and back) • Disclaimer (if necessary)

Process for Design and Approval of Accreditation cards Each LOC has to use the template provided by FIS Marketing AG as the basis for the design of the local accreditation card. Where it is not possible to use the exact template provided by FIS Marketing AG, the LOC can develop their own layout but must work within the FIS Marketing AG guidelines. The photo on the card is optional. Each LOC must present their accreditation card design to FIS Marketing AG for approval before the card is produced.
