The International Judo Federation (IJF) International Referee award is awarded by the International Judo Federation (IJF) according to the rules laid out by the IJF.

If you already hold a Continental level Referee award and want to referee at higher levels on the international circuit, this is the award for you. The BJA and EJU must approve your application for examination before attempting this award.

On successful completion of the assessment, candidates will receive a IJF International Referee award and will be authorised to referee at World events.
