The IIHF World Ranking is a ranking of the national teams of member countries of the International Ice Hockey Federation.

The system was approved by the IIHF congress in September 2003. According to IIHF President René Fasel, the system was designed to be simple to understand and "reflect the long-term quality of all national hockey programs and their commitment to international hockey."

System

Both the men's and women's ranking systems are based on the standings of the most recent Winter Olympic Games and the four most recent IIHF World Championships. The world champion or Olympic gold medal winner is awarded 1200 points. In general there is a 20 point interval between two ranks, but there is a 40-point interval between position 1 and 2, 2 and 3, 4 and 5 and 8 and 9. The results of the most recent tournaments have a higher weight in the ranking. For example, in the 2009 men's ranking, The 2009 tournament has 100% points value, the 2008 has 75%, 2007 has 50% and 2006 has 25%. All championships before that are no longer counted. The Olympic tournament has the same value as the World Championship the same year. If several teams are equal on points, the position of most recent World Championship will decide the ranking of those teams.

Effects

The ranking is used to determine the seeding of the teams for the next World Championship and to select the teams which can participate in Winter Olympics without playing in the qualifying round. For the 2010 Winter Olympics the first nine teams of the Men's World Ranking and the first six of the Women's World Ranking can participate without qualification. Qualification for the the men's tournament at the 2010 Winter Olympics was structured around the 2008 ranking. Twelve spots were made available for teams. The top nine teams in the World Ranking after the 2008 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships received automatic berths into the Ice Hockey event. Teams ranked 10th through 30th had an opportunity to qualify for the event. The women's tournament uses a similar qualification format. The top six teams in the IIHF Women's World Ranking after the 2008 Women's World Ice Hockey Championships received automatic berths into the ice hockey event. Lower ranked teams had an opportunity to qualify for the event. Teams ranked 13th and below were divided into two groups where they played in a first qualification round in September 2008. The two group winners from the round advanced to the second qualification round, where the teams ranked seventh through twelfth joined them.
