Equestrian Helmet Tagging Policy Update 2017

​​​​​​​This policy supercedes the 2016 update, with the major changes being the removal of references to the blue tag and the EN1384 standard, both of which are  now obsolete.

​​​​​​​Body Protector Standards

The NZPCA PC Area Forum asked the Health and Safety Committee to look at recommended safety standards for body protectors.

There are safety standards for body protectors in England and the USA. BETA EN13158 2009 Level 3 or ASTM F1937.

We are not making these safety standards mandatory until  1st August 2020 but recommend that any families looking to purchase body protectors do so with these standards in mind.

Please share this information with anyone you know who is looking at purchasing a Body Protector.
