Worse, they are very unaccountable.
A group of coaches asked me recently how to send input to the Men’s Technical Committee of FIG.
From what I could find, there is no specific mechanism set out by FIG. You could try emailing the committee members. (If you can find those email addresses.)
Men’s Technical Committee President
Adrian Stoica (ROM)
Men’s Technical Committee
Istvan Karacsony (HUN), Julio Felipe Marcos (ESP), Huang Liping (CHN), Sawao Kato (JPN), Enrique Salanitro (ARG)
Women’s Technical Committee President
Nellie Kim (BLR)
Women’s Technical Committee
Yan Ninan (CHN), Lyubov Burda-Andrianova (RUS), Kim Dowdell (AUS), Donatella Sacchi (ITA), Anca Grigoras (ROM), Yashie Harinishi (JPN)
Perhaps contact Men’s chairman Adrian Stoica directly at his office at the Romanian Gymnastics Federation. (He’s President. Conflict of interest?) I’m sure Adrian will be happy to hear from you.
Or, you could try the general contact form on the FIG website. (Don’t hold your breath.)
Leave a comment below if you know of a better way to send FIG feedback on the regulations that affect the lives of athletes.

The Men’s Code of Points, for example:
