Dear National Federations,
This is to remind that the 2016 Equine Prohibited Substances List became effective on 1 January 2016 and is available in PDF format for download from the FEI Clean Sport website or directly here. The concept of Specified Substances has also been introduced from 1 January 2016. Substances that fall into the category of Specified Substances have been accordingly highlighted in the Equine Prohibited Substances List.
The review process for the 2017 Equine Prohibited Substances List changes is now underway and details regarding this process are explained here.
We invite all National Federations, veterinarians, athletes, grooms, judges or other interested parties to submit their suggestions for consideration by the List Group in preparation of the 2017 List.
Please use the FEI Prohibited List Suggestions Form and complete all fields, including information regarding the substance, its use, application and specific reasoning for inclusion or change of category as applicable. All suggested changes should be received by Caterina Termine no later than 21 March 2016 for consideration during 2016.
REMINDER - Endurance Update of the 09.09.2015
Dear Endurance Officials,
In order to gain experience and speed up the promotion process, some officials cumulate roles during a day for different CEI categories at the same venue.
This kind of practice has its advantages, but also disadvantages. While it’s true that an Official gains experience in different roles, it’s also true that he/she doesn’t take decisions alone as there will be other senior officials involved in the decision making process which is an integral part of the learning process.
Therefore, in order to have a better grasp on the promotions to be approved by the FEI Endurance Department, the FEI Endurance Technical Committee have approved for trial period of six months, that requested promotions be approved only if the PGJ of the higher star ranking event of that day, makes a recommendation for the promotion.
The trial period will run from 1 January to 1 July 2016. Should the trial prove efficient and appropriate then it will be continued, and if not, other measures will be sought for the evaluation of promotions.
Endurance needs better equipped officials, and in order to do achieve this and increase the level of responsibility, a better evaluation system needs to be put in place.
Before the event starts the PGJ will receive a form to be completed and returned signed to the FEI Endurance Department. Without this form duly received at the FEI, no promotion will be possible based on events were officials have officiated in the same day in more than one CEI.
Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the FEI Endurance team.
With kind regards,
Manuel Bandeira de Mello
