The International Ice Hockey Federation is a worldwide governing body for ice hockey and in-line hockey. It is based in Zurich, Switzerland, and has 81 members. It manages international ice hockey tournaments and maintains the IIHF World Ranking.
Although the IIHF governs international competitions, the IIHF has no authority on hockey in North America or the rules of the National Hockey League. Hockey Canada and USA Hockey federations have their own rulebooks, while non-North American federations usually follow the IIHF rules.
Decisions of the IIHF can be appealed through the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland.
