As part of our commitment to safeguarding and fair play, British Quiz Association (BQA) and International Quizzing Association (IQA) events, including both in-person and online activities, are run in accordance with the following code of conduct and fair play policies.
Code of Conduct In Brief
The BQA and IQA expects all participants to play fairly, and they take cheating at tournaments very seriously. To this end, they have put the following rules in place:
BQA and/or IQA reserve the right to suspend or expel participants from tournaments who are suspected of rule-breaking.
After the tournament, any suspected wrongdoing will be referred to the directors, who will review the evidence available and determine any sanctions that may need to be enacted, which could include a ban from BQA or IQA events for an indefinite or stipulated amount of time.
Please email us to report any violations of the code of conduct or suspected cheating. The person reporting the suspected cheating must have witnessed the incident(s) themselves: firstname.lastname@example.org
