Thankyou for your support of the Sport of Fencing in Australia.

Generally, the weapons control rules are shown under Material Rules here: http://fie.org/fie/documents/rules.  The implementation and adaptation of these is described in the Policy document attached below. 

Updated in March 2014 to reflect changed (banned) mask visor rules, and 800N cuff in sabre (see here: http://www.fie.ch/download/equipment/fr/LGlove2.pdf).

Updated in February 2015 to reflect dual-fixing mask ("Leon Paul") rules.

Updated in June 2015 to reflect enforcement of FIE rule m25.6 (foil / epee gloves without body wire cut-out) - see "On-Strip Testing". (now tested at Weapons Control).

Updated in February 2016 to reflect new FIE rules m.27.3 and m.32.4 relating to "coily" mask wires.

The AFF Executive has received the recommendations of the Tournament Management Commission and advises as follows in relation to chest protectors (see section m.25.4(c) of this document: http://static6.fie.org/uploads/5/27585-list%20of%20decisions%202014%20congress%20-%20ANG.pdf): The TMC is waiting on further information in regards to the specifications, and possibily the reason to bring this rule in. As the FIE is only bringing it in from the start of the 2015/2016 season, it does not appear to be for safety reasons. Based on the current data available, the TMC is proposing that they be brought in from 1 Jan 2017 for Australian National events. Once the FIE Semi has released further information, the TMC may adjust this recommendation.

We have recently become aware that some time in the future there will be a requirement for all plastrons to have a collar at International level (i.e. outside Australia).  This is not yet required within Australia.

Bayonet body wire connectors in foil and sabre are permitted at all events hosted in Australia.

National Schools Competitions

For National Schools Competitions, the following requirements do not apply, but are recommended:

Schools Championships (all): 800N Jacket & Breeches (only 350N minimum required), conductive Foil Bib

Schools Teams Championships (2016 only): Dual-fixing on Masks

Ban on Leon Paul Epee Blades

The AFF has confirmed the worldwide ban on some Leon Paul FIE epee blades.  Specifically Leon Paul SR-71 Epee blades with dates marked 08.2012 to 06.2015 will no longer be acceptable for use at AFF events - all others are okay.
