 W B F PRESIDENT writes to us on 12-01-12 > "I am pleased to confirm to you the WBF  permission  and blessings to print as book the WBF 2007 LAWS". 

 WBF Law committee states that These Flow Charts can be useful when applying the Laws of   Duplicate Bridge, but it emphasizes that it has not approved the content and that the Laws  themselves remain the legal basis on which our game is conducted.

 Flow charts are prepared by Mr Laval De Breuil - ACBL Director from Canada to enable  many  laws to be understood well by Tourney directors and appeals' committee members. Flow Chart   Example - Here  

 We agree that these FLOW CHARTS are not a part of WBF LAWS 2007.  They are only an aid to  understand the Laws better.
