The 1999 IIHF World Women's Championships Pool B were held between March 21-March 28, 1999 in the town of Colmar in France.

This was the first year of the Pool B tournament which saw Japan win the Pool with a 7-1 final game victory over Norway to promote them to the World Championship. A third tier was played as well (called 2000 B Qualification) with six nations in Székesfehérvár, Hungary.

1999 Qualification Tournament[edit]

Group B contained the seven teams that failed to qualify for the main World Championships through the Qualification Process and Japan.

World Championship Group B[edit]

The eight participating teams were divided up into two seeded groups as below. The teams played each other once in a single round robin format. The top two teams from the group proceeded to the Final Round, while the remaining teams played in the Consolation Round.

The winning team in the tournament was promoted to the 2000 World Championship, while the bottom two teams would be relegated to the 2001 Group B Qualification tournament.
