Unless a time limit is expressly provided for in these rules, the chairman of the First Chamber or the Appeals Chamber, or the reporting member are entitled to set appropriate time limits at their discretion.
A time limit starts from the day after which it is notified in writing. It is considered to have been observed if acted upon by 24.00 CET (Central European Time) on the deadline date. Official holidays and non-working days are included in the calculation of time limits. When a deadline expires on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday in the Swiss canton of Vaud, where UEFA's headquarters are located, it is carried forward to the next working day.
On receipt of a reasoned, written request, the chairman of the First Chamber or Appeals Chamber, or the reporting member may extend a time limit.
Time limits are interrupted from 20 December to 5 January inclusive.
