Can anyone tell me what year the most current FIBA ruleset is dated? I have a copy dated September 2004 and was wondering if they have been updated since then.

When I officiated FIBA, the rule book was published every second year. If that is still the case, September 2006 would be the next publication, and therefore you have the latest edition. If publishing every other year is no longer the case, then the only option is that at most you're out by one year.

FIBA rules are updated every 4 years - September 2004 is the most recent edition. This has been the case for as long as I have been refereeing (started with the 1982 rules).

FIBA rulebooks were issued in the following years:
1982
1986
1990
1994
1998
2000
2004

The 2000 edition was the only time that FIBA went to a 2 year gap - this had something to do with the 2000 Olympics, but I can't remember what specifically.

The 1998/2000 split would be why I thought they were every two years.

So they only have rules changes every 4 years? I think I might like that.

Yeah it does make things a little easier.

In addition, FIBA releases interpretations and points of emphasis on a pretty regular basis. There is no preset schedule for this, it depends on when issues arise. Usually intrepretations come out around 12 months after a new rulebook and again 2 years later. POE's are usually issued 6 - 12 months after a new rulebook.

I believe I speak for most of Ontario when I say **** the BeOne initiative!!!

From what I understand FIBA publishes their new rules after the Summer Olympics, or something like that. It's somehow related to the Olympics.

Don't forget that I have links to all the most recent rulebooks on my website:

Ref18 - you are righ. The rules committee meets after the summer olympics and then the new rules used to be released 2 years after the games. This gave everyone time to get a copy and implement the rules before the next Olympics. However since the 2000 Olympics, new rules have been released and implemented immediately after the games. I assume that this has something to do with the spread of technology and the internet making it easier and quicker to distribute rule changes.

At least the beauty is, is that you don't need to order one! FIBA publishes it for free!
