An NOC may enter up to one athlete per weight category. The qualifying places will be allocated as follows:

Event/Union Date Location Men Women Totals
World Championships September 13–16, 2007 Brazil Rio de Janeiro 6 6 84
African Judo Union May 2006 – May 2008 3 2 35
Judo Union of Asia Nov 2006 – Apr 2008 5 3 58[a]
European Judo Union Apr 2007 – Apr 2008 9 5 98
Oceania Judo Union Sep 2007 – Mar 2008 1 1 14
Pan-American Judo Union May 2006 – May 2008 6 3 63
Host Nation (CHN) 1 1 14[b]
TOTAL   31 21 366

a  Two additional places will be awarded to this union, but gender and weight categories are to be defined.

b  If the host nation qualifies athletes directly through the world championships or Asian continental qualification system, the reserved entry places will be reallocated as part of the Asian continental qualification.

Continental qualification places will be allocated through the ranking system based on the major tournaments on the continent (continental championships, qualification tournaments). More important tournaments and tournaments closer to the Olympics will carry more points. Deadline for the unions to confirm the places was May 21, 2008.
