Controllers are the officials appointed to make sure that events are fair and comply with BOF Rules and Guidelines, and may be best be thought of as technical advisers and quality controllers. Their appointment is governed by BOF rules detailing the experience necessary. There are three grades:

Grade A for controlling events at the highest level, such as British Championships.
Grade B for controlling events at Level B.
Grade C for controlling events at Level C, such as SWOA Galoppens.
Grade B and C controllers are recommended by their club and appointed by their regional association. Grade A controllers are recommended by their regional association and appointed at national level; they are orienteers with considerable experience as competitors, organisers, planners and controllers.

All enquiries about appointments of controllers in SWOA should be made to the Recorder of Controllers.

A list of all controllers in SWOA can be found here

One member of SWOA is on the British Orienteering Board of Directors.
