Only athletes who have undergone a valid eye classification, carried out by IBSA and under IBSA Judo rules, and have an eligible sight class, may enter any high level IBSA Judo event.
IBSA-sanctioned events are the IBSA World Games, Judo World Championships and Continental Championships. Sight classification will be arranged at all sanctioned events.
The IBSA Judo World Cups (held jointly with IJF events) do not necessarily have sight classification. Athletes wishing to enter these competitions must have a valid international sight classification. This will be checked prior to competition.
The Judo classification master list is available here: https://www.ibsasport.org/sports/judo/general-documents/
Sight classification will take place at the following events:
Asian (and Oceanian) Senior Championships – 22nd May, Tashkent (UZB)
European Senior Championships – 13th August, Birmingham (GBR),
Pan-American Senior Championships - August-September Sao-Paolo (BRA).

World Cups (no sight classification, only verification of sight class):
