CEV has 56 recognised member National Federations. Each shall abide by the Constitution and/or Statutes, regulations, rules of the game and decisions of the FIVB and the CEV.
This obligation shall also extend to all members of those National Federations including clubs, officials, assisting personnel, referees, players, coaches, team members and all persons acting within their responsibility, by means of their statutes and regulations.
A National Federation may become a CEV member after having completed the process of affiliation to the FIVB and following the decision of the CEV General Assembly.
They shall have considerable autonomy of management, but must comply with the Constitution, Statutes, Code of Conduct, regulations and decisions of the FIVB and the CEV.
