Rule 8.    Ice surface / fit to play
IIHF

1. Ice hockey must be played on a white ice surface known as a rink. It must be of a quality deemed fit to play by the on-ice officials in charge of the game.

2. The ice surface must be prepared with water and chemicals to a consistent quality in all areas and must be properly frozen by either a reliable system of refrigeration to ensure stable temperature and density or by natural causes.

3. If, prior to or during the playing of a game, any section of the ice or rink becomes damaged, the on-ice officials will immediately stop the game and ensure the necessary repairs are made before game action resumes.

4. If the repairs delay the game unduly, the referee has the option to send the teams to their respective dressing rooms until the rink is deemed fit to play. If the problem cannot be solved in a short period of time or if any section of the ice or rink is of a quality that makes playing the game dangerous, the referee has the right to postpone the game until such a time as the ice or rink can be properly made fit to play.

5. If any lengthy delay occurs within ten minutes of the end of a period, the referee has the option to send the teams to their respective dressing rooms to begin the intermission immediately. The rest of the period will be played after the repairs and resurfacing of the ice has been completed and the full intermission time has elapsed. When play resumes, teams will defend the same goal as before play was postponed, and at the end of the period they will change ends and begin playing the ensuing period without delay.

6. If the playing area is affected by fog or other opaque air, the referee will not permit game action to take place until the air in the arena is suitably clear for players and fans to experience a safe environment.
