Both players have been summoned to attend a hearing of its disciplinary committee on Thursday 20 July and a decision is expected later that day.
FIFA said: "The decision was taken following claims made by Zinedine Zidane, who attacked Materazzi with a headbutt during the final."
Zidane has the right to make a written statement, which must be submitted by Tuesday 18 July.
Materazzi will then be given a copy of the statement so he can respond.
