The Premier League is set to use new rules next season after football's law-making body has made changes to the use of pitch-side monitors and an explanation of which part of the arm can be penalised as handball.
The International Football Association Board have addressed a number of the controversial aspects of officiating the game, such as the use of the video assistant referee (VAR) and handball and penalty kick decisions.
And referees are likely to spend much more time looking at pitch-side monitors next season thanks to their changes.
The new Laws of the Game appear to have underlyingly criticised the Premier League - who had given the power to make decisions about reviewable incidents to the VAR official - by insisting that the referee undertake an on-field review.
Meanwhile, encroachment into the area by outfield players from both teams as a penalty is being taken will lead to it being retaken - regardless of whether the penalty was scored or not.
The IFAB also confirmed that it is reviewing the offside law with a view to making the margin of error greater and avoiding ‘armpit offsides’.
