Pre-Requisites for Referee Registrations
Referees who will be officiating under 18s matches or below must have an in-date FA CRC (Criminal Records Check) before registering each season. The FA CRC lasts for three years from the date of issue.
On your FA Referees Course, you will have completed an FA Safeguarding Children Certificate. It is our recommendation, as an example of best practice, that you retain your safeguarding qualification. This is also valid for three years from the date of issue. We strongly advise all referees to hold both an in-date FA CRC and FA Safeguarding Certificate. For those who need to renew or complete an FA CRC, please see ‘Related Documents’.
