Zero Tolerance violations by coaches and/or spectators needs to be reported by the Referees of the match in each of their referee reports according to a sliding scale of 0 to 3 where 0 = no ZT up to 3 = most severe ZT violator. LAW #5 Referees/Refereeing Systems/Ejections/Game Report is in effect. A Guide for the referee's ZT numerical report follows, and specific comments are welcome:
