The application for a permit to arrange competition, training or exhibition matches in the martial arts.
Anyone who wants to arrange a martial arts match must apply for a permit from the Martial Arts Delegation at the Örebro County Administrative Board. Martial arts in the legal sense means a sport that permits the participants to intentionally strike the opponent's head with blows, kicks or other violence. Martial arts matches that only allow marked blows or kicks towards the head are not covered by the permit requirement.
There are two different kinds of permits that can be applied for:
1. Permit to arrange one or more matches
If they e.g. concern a tournament over several days. A permit for several matches presupposes that the same competitive rules and safety regulations apply for all martial arts matches. The application is to be sent in no later than three months before the first match.
2. General permit for a specific period/until further notice
Organisations that are responsible for the martial art, usually a martial arts association, have the possibility of applying for a general permit for a certain period of time or until further notice. Then the permit is not tied to arranging individual martial arts matches. Such a permit can then comprise organisers that are affiliated with the organisation, if the organiser is a member of the organisation and bound by the regulations that the organisation has adopted. The application is to be sent in well in advance of the first match.
A permit to arrange martial arts matches is only granted on condition that the martial art's competitive rules and safety regulations entail adequate safety for the participants.
The permit is applied for at the Örebro County Administrative Board. The county administrative board is the supervisory body.
The permit is sent to the Örebro County Administrative Board. The application fee to arrange one or more matches is SEK 700 and for a general permit, the fee is SEK 1,350. You can send the registration electronically via this service.
