Current Referee grade:
Level 2
[LAWS]LAW 5 - Time
5.1 A match lasts 14 minutes (split into two halves, each of not more than seven minutes)
plus time lost. When a drawn match requires extra-time, play restarts after a oneminute
break with periods of no more than five minutes. After each period, the teams
change ends without an interval.
A competition final match may last no longer than 20 minutes (split into two halves,
each of not more than 10 minutes)
plus lost time and extra-time.[/LAWS]

bit in bold got changed over 12 months ago. Dubai 2016 was where it changed to 7 minutes at the elite level. This draft is either very old or not properly updated.

But the 2017 Law Book did not change (I seem to remember, having tried to justify it for a tournament over the summer).
