World Rugby regulation 5 states that each union is responsible for the authorisation and regulation of agents acting on behalf of its members (or persons within its jurisdiction) and agents operating under that union’s jurisdiction. Each union should establish appropriate regulations to govern and authorise the activity of agents.
The RFU has incorporated World Rugby Regulation 5 into its agents regulations, which are contained within RFU Regulation 8. The full agents regulations can be viewed in the regulations section of englandrugby.com.
For the avoidance of doubt the RFU’s agents regulations are applicable to the RFU, RFU members and officials, all clubs, Constituent Bodies, club officials, members and employees, registered agents, and players.
