The Association/Federation Doctor is the highest authority in all medical questions and assignments. After informing the WKF World Advisory Board Director, he/she decides independently in all medical matters.

A Board quorum is constituted by the presence of the WKF World Advisory Board Director resident and one third of its members. Decisions concerning the agenda are taken by simple majority. The WKF World Advisory Board Director has a casting vote.
In urgent matters the council (WKF World Advisory Board Director and WKF Oceania Director, Vice-President/s, General Secretary, Chief Referee) may decide independently, i.e. without prior Board decision, the subsequent approval of the board of directors being necessary. The council, however, takes full responsibility in “Council decisions”.
The two auditors are elected for a term of four years. They must not be members of the council. The auditors are in charge of auditing and controlling the financial administration of the Association. They are to be given unrestricted access to minutes and all other material necessary to fulfil their function. On their demand, they are to be given any information relevant to their task.
1.4 Court of Arbitration
Within the WKF, the Court of arbitration decides on all points of contention between members. It consists of five members to be elected by the parties in dispute. The Court elects its own Chairperson and decides by simple majority with all members present. The principle of both parties in dispute being heard has to be heeded. Decisions by the court of arbitration are final.
1.5 Voluntary Dissolution of the Association/Federation WKF WORLD KICKBOXING FEDERATION.
The voluntary dissolution of the Amateur Association WKF may only be decided on at a General Assembly called solely for this purpose with a two-thirds majority. The assets of the Association/Federation are to be donated to charitable organisations, as it sees fit.
