- Section D2 - The qualification period ends on 31 March the next year instead of 31 December current year.
- Section D5 - Qualifiers will receive a letter of invitation where previously they did not.
- Section E2 - The qualification period now runs from 1 April till 31 March, where previously the current year was the qualifying period for the next year's Championships.
