The International Skating Union (ISU) has addressed how the cancellation of the final day of competition at 2015 Trophée Eric Bompard will affect the results of the competition as well as qualifying for the 2015 Grand Prix Final. The free programs were called off following the terror attacks in Paris on Nov. 13.

According to the announcement, the results of the short programs and short dance are considered final for Trophée Bompard. Therefore, the Grand Prix qualifying points assigned to Bompard have been awarded based on the standings of the short programs/short dance.

The top six skaters or teams in the Grand Prix standings will qualify for the Grand Prix Final, as usual. However, if a skater or couple who competed in Bordeaux end up in seventh place following the conclusion of the 2015 Grand Prix Series, they will also qualify for the Grand Prix Final.

Tiebreakers for the Grand Prix Final have also been modified.

The world standing points, world ranking points and prize money for 2015 Trophée Eric Bompard have also been awarded based on the event's short program/short dance results.
