The following are some examples of Short Program deductions. These guidelines were set by the International Skating Union in Communication No. 980 (a revision of Communication No. 939).

A. Single Short Program

	0.3	Stepping out of a landing
	0.2-0.3	Rotation not complete 
	0.1-0.3	Starting from the wrong edge
	0.1-0.3	Steps/movements not immediately
		preceding jump
	0.1-0.2	Touch down of free foot or hand(s)	
	0.1	Only 1 movement preceding jump

   Jump combination (0.1 - 0.4, omission 0.5)

   Spin (0.1 - 0.4, omission 0.5)

	0.4	Fall
	0.2-0.3	Re-centering of spin
	0.1-0.3	Less than required revolutions
	0.1-0.2	Touch down of free foot or hand(s)

   Spin combination (0.1 - 0.4, omission 0.5)

	0.4	Fall

   Additional deductions

	0.3	Repetition of solo jump or either jump in
		combination jump
	0.1-0.2	Not according to requirements/rules
	0.1-0.2	Extra or repeated elements

The execution of an unprescribed element in place of a 
prescribed element must be considered as an omission plus 
an additional deduction of 0.1-0.2 for an extra element 
should be taken.
