On issue of each Technical Bulletins Softball Victoria considers if the international rules and interpretations shall apply at State level.  In the main the rules and interpretations within each Technical Bulletin are adopted but there can be times when they are adopted in part or not at all.  eg: not adopting the change to pitching distance for other than Open age A grade competitions.
