Rules & Regulations

The updated Rules & Regulations and scoresheets will be used beginning at the 2016 World Barista Championships in Dublin, Ireland.

In order to ease the transition into the new rules, National Bodies have the option to use the 2015 rules for the next year (however, by 2017, all National Bodies must adhere to the new rules). For your convenience, we have left these previous versions accessible.

All WBC interpreters must familiarize themselves with the following document prior to the WBC.
