New mask requirements – 2018/19 FIE season
Fencers who are considering entering international events are reminded that the new mask fastening requirements introduced by the FIE apply from the start of the 2018/19 FIE season (September 2018).
Fencers can purchase a new (compliant) mask or can arrange to have their existing mask retrofitted – however, retrofitting can only be carried out by suppliers who have been approved by the original equipment manufacturer. Further information (including a list of supplier approvals) is available here.
The new mask requirements will apply to AFC events from 1 January 2019.
