The FIFA Organising Committee is responsible for appointing match commissioners and, as a general rule, appoints one commissioner to each match.

The invitation to act as commissioner may be made either in writing or by telephone. As soon as the commissioner has accepted the appointment, he will receive the necessary documents such as the competition regulations, a commissioner's report form, an expense account form as well as other relevant documents. The commissioner shall take all these documents with him on his assignment.

If necessary, the FIFA general secretariat will provide him with other important information such as specific risks inherent in a match. The FIFA general secretariat will also inform the host association of the commissioner's name.

This point also applies to the referee inspector and security officer, if appointed.
