At a training camp for basketball officials, a senior official emphasized the importance of rule knowledge. He explained that he keeps a copy of the basketball rulebook in his bathroom. Every time he spends time on the toilet, he reads the rulebook.
All regulatory officials should adopt this practice. Rule books in some fields are quite lengthy. But with electronic publications and e-readers, regulatory code books can easily fit into any bathroom. Reading regulations in the bathroom could contribute significantly to improved regulatory practice and greater regularity.
