Definition of a law and a bylaw

The WA rule book is divided into laws and bylaws. Laws define the principles, the essentials, whereas bylaws describe the application and usage of the laws.

Laws are decided every four years for archery rules by the Congress held in the year after the Summer Olympic Games, and at every Congress for procedural and constitutional matters.

Following the procedure of Appendix 1 of Book 1, Article 6.6, bylaws are decided by Council and valid up to the following Congress.

Bylaws approved by Council are included, as they are confirmed, in the Rule Book, highlighted in doted underlining, until the next Congress approved them. They are also listed in the table below individually..
