22.2.1 Only the 1st and 2nd referees may blow a whistle during the match:

22.2.1.1 the 1st referee gives the signal for the service that begins the rally; 

22.2.1.2 the 1st or 2nd referee signals the end of the rally, provided that they are sure that a fault has been committed and they have identified its nature.
22.2.2 They may blow the whistle when the ball is out of play to indicate that they authorize or reject a team request.

22.2.3 Immediately after the referee’s whistle to signal the completion of the rally, they have to indicate with the official hand signals:

22.2.3.1 if the fault is whistled by the 1st referee, he/she will indicate in order:

a) the team to serve, 
b) the nature of the fault,
c) the player(s) at fault (if necessary).

22.2.3.2 If the fault is whistled by the 2nd referee, he/she will indicate:

a) the nature of the fault,
b) the player at fault (if necessary),
c) the team to serve following the hand signal of the 1st referee. 
In this case, the 1st referee does not show either the nature of the fault or the player at fault, but only the team to serve.

The team to serve next is then indicated by the 1st referee.
