The WWFF Rules are generally intended for WWFF , for World Wide activities, but are of course superseeded by National Awards Rules, where there are.
This, although clearly stated in the WWFF Rules at 2.1 (… In countries where a National WWFF program exists, then any existing National rules take priority over the global rules) is very often not known by activators going in other countries.
So it may happen that operators coming from countries where the Activation requirements are different, believe honestly that they may do activities in other countries following their country rules. This is not exactly so! The same is for the Awards: he must follow the local rules, as recalled also by the above stated point 2.1 of the WWFF Global Rules.
