The FIE may require body wires with transparent plugs to be used at all FIE competitions starting 2020-2021 season (decision to be confirmed at Congress 2019).

 

Fencing New Zealand has accepted the Officiating Commission's recommendations that clear body wires will not be mandatory at any Fencing New Zealand event unless the event has an international component and requires this to be enforced (ie, Oceanic Championships, Commonwealths etc).
