Please note the following advice from FIE relating to chest protectors, including the changed date for it to become operative and that this relates to FIE competitions.
Any implications for domestic competitions will be assessed and any changes needed will be posted and circulated.
In 2014, the FIE Congress adopted a modification of article m.25.4.c concerning chest protector. The SEMI Commission was in charge of defining the standard and testing procedure, which has been done. However, available prototypes still have to be tested on athletes.
Given that these tests are absolutely necessary, the Executive Committee has decided to postpone the use of the new chest protector. The latter will be compulsory starting with the 2016-2017 season.
