Below is guidance on the use of Bridgemates from the EBU (White Book)

Bridgemate protocol The following is published in EBU competition programmes regarding the use of Bridgemates:
North (or South) is responsible for entering the contract and result into the Bridgemate, and East (or West) must be shown it to verify its accuracy by pressing the ACCEPT button.
It is best to enter the contract, declarer and lead at the end of the auction – this saves time, reduces the risk of entering the wrong board number, and ensures the lead is fresh in your mind. 
Entering the lead accurately not only provides extra information of interest to players, but can also assist the scorer in resolving errors of data entry.
It is an offence to attempt to access the TD screen or change a score in the Bridgemate without calling the TD.

If a score is entered and accepted;
If the sitting pair at a table does not check they have the right opponents this merits a warning only for the first offence. Making a board unplayable by scoring on the electronic scorer against the wrong board number and seeing the results from a board not yet played is scored AVE-/AVE- assuming both pairs had the chance to stop the error (N/S when scoring, E/W when agreeing the score).  Exception to this may be made, for example a new Pair / Visitor that have not used Bridgemates before.
