The IJF Pilot 2017 is applied on all Judo Tournaments in The Netherlands, including the Special Needs Judo Tournaments. One exemption is made concerning the IJF pilot in Special Needs judo.

If a match comes to the full regular match time without difference in technical scores between the judoka, then the difference in Shido(s) is decisive to appoint a winner. Should there also be no difference in Shido(s), then the winner is determined by Hantei.
