FEI Medical Committee presents draft on policy for enhanced competition safety during the Covid-19 pandemic

Sunday, 10 May 2020

Earlier this week – on May 5th – the FEI Board met via videoconference to review a number of key issues. 

In mid-April, the FEI Board mandated the FEI Medical Committee to work on a protocol for national federations and organising committees to provide measures for the safe resumption of international equestrian events when approved by the World Health Organization and national governments.

During this week's videoconference, Dr Mark Hart – Chair of the Medical Committee – presented a draft of the 'FEI Policy for Enhanced Competition Safety during the Covid-19 pandemic' to the Board.

"The Medical Committee and FEI Headquarters have now been further mandated to finalise the Policy, which will contain a set of recommended discipline-specific guidelines, including an obligation for Organisers to carry out a Risk Assessment to host safe competitions. Once completed, the Board will give final sign-off for the Policy, including a Risk Assessment tool, in advance of distribution to National Federations and Organisers," reads a summary from the FEI.
