    Updated FEI Event Schedule policy regarding Officials

    We would like to kindly remind everyone that all FEI Officials must have “passed” their annual CES Online Assessment to officiate at FEI Events.

    The CES Online Assessment not only ensures integrity at all FEI Events, as well as the validity of the results, it is also testimony to FEI’s commitment in providing services of the highest standard to the athletes, the public and the sport.

    In order to ensure that all FEI Events take place according the FEI Rules and Regulations, and to proactively prevent potential issues from arising during competitions, we have updated the FEI Event Schedule Policy.

    As of 1 August 2024, the following FEI Event Schedule Policy will apply:

    Officials must have “passed” their CES Online Assessment of the current year to be added to schedules of events taking place after the 31 March.

    For information, the officiating/maintenance year runs from the 15 December of each year and until the 15 December of the following year.

    • Every year, from 16 December to 31 March (transition period), Officials with an open function can still officiate without having passed the annual CES Online Assessment of the current year.
    • Every year, from 31 March to 14 December (regulated period), Officials must have passed the CES Online Assessment of the current year to officiate, and to keep their function open.

    You can find all information here on Inside.FEI.org.

    The FEI Nominated /Certificate of Capability Entry forms include the space to enter the Horse Owners, this is in relation to the counter-check for the Sport entry deadline (8 July 2024).
    The Paris2024 Sport entry system (8 July 2024 – Sport entry deadline) will require that NOCs/NFs declare - ‘Horse Owner 1’ and ‘Horse Owner 2’ – in the fields that are set up as drop-down lists, with names from the accreditation system that are registered in the Horse Owner category. The Horse Owner 1 must be validated against the Horse Passport.
    In case an NOC/NF decides to make a Pre-competition Change (LAR) before the first Horse Inspection of the respective discipline with a Horse from the FEI Nominated Entries different from the Horse entered by 8 July 2024, the Horse Owner information must be available and entered in the system accordingly.
    We invite NOCs/NFs to submit the information of Horse Owner 1 for any Horse not included in the Paris2024 Sport entry system separately to the FEI by 8 July 2024 to ensure that the FEI can confirm the information and allow a potential transfer if needed.

    Jumping - Dressage - Eventing - Prefix and suffix for commercial names

    No commercial prefix or suffix will be included with the name of a Horse on any Olympic participation/entry, start or result list. The FEI reserves the right to amend any Horse’s name accordingly (see Olympic Regs Art. 606.2.5).
    It is the responsibility of the NF/NOC to remove (indicated as strikethrough text or in quotation marks) any commercial prefix or suffix from the names of the Horses listed in the Certificate of Capability. FEI Headquarters will review the list and confirm any additional changes when confirming the Nominated entries (Certificates of Capability).

    Jumping - Dressage - Eventing - Pre-competition Changes (LAR)

    Any Pre-competition Change can only be made with another Athlete/Horse combination that has obtained the Minimum Eligibility Requirement for participation according to the relevant discipline rules and duly entered on the FEI List of Nominated Entry list from 25 June 2024. (Olympic Regs Art 609.1.2).

    Dressage - Individualised Floorplans

    The submission deadline for the individualised floorplans via the FEI Freestyle Creator has been set to the start of the Grand Prix Special. Submitting the floorplan in time is mandatory for all athletes who qualified either for the Grand Prix Special (Team Athletes) or directly for the Grand Prix Freestyle (Individual Athletes). This submission deadline was selected not only to give athletes as much time as possible to decide which floorplan they want to use, but also to enable storytelling around the specific difficulties of these floorplans and to facilitate the Olympic Broadcasting Service capture combinations in the best way possible. Please note that athletes can contact the FEI through dressagefreestyle@fei.org should they wish to check that their floorplans are correctly entered.

    Paris 2024 - NOCs uniform submissioni - Authorised Identifications

    Further to discussions with the IOC, we encourage all NOCs/NFs to review the guidelines regarding Authorised Identification for Equestrian at the Olympic Games 2024 are available under the following links and on the FEI Paris 2024 hub:

    The FEI will not approve any specific equipment and/or uniforms.
    Prevention on the manipulation of competitions

    In the lead up to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games (Paris 2024) the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has recently launched the campaign “Believe in Sport” to raise awareness about competition manipulation and most importantly about what is permitted and what is not permitted during Paris 2024 by any accredited person to the Games.
    Keeping sport fair is a top priority for the IOC and for the FEI. As the manipulation of sports competitions has become an area of great concern in recent years within the sports world, the FEI remains committed to fighting all forms of cheating that threaten both the integrity and the essence of sport.
    It is important to note that this information concerns not only Athletes and Officials, but any person accredited to the Games as the Athletes' Support Personnel, such as trainers, owners, grooms, veterinarians, etc… Furthermore, Executive Board and Board members, as well as their guests are also concerned.
    It is the personal responsibility of everyone involved in the Games, to be aware of the Olympic Movement Code on the Prevention of Manipulation of Competitions including, without limitation, what conduct constitutes a violation of the Code and to comply with the Code's requirements.
    Always remember these four basic Rules:
    Rule #1: Don’t fix the competition and always do your best
    Rule #2: Don’t bet on your own sport or any event at the Olympic Games
    Rule #3: Don’t share information about health issues and sport tactics
    Rule #4: Speak up! If you witness or suspect competition manipulation, you must report it.
    For more information on the prevention of competition manipulation (such as definitions, what is permitted and what is not permitted at Paris 2024, the Code on the Prevention of Manipulation of Competitions, the e-learning course or the Reporting Mechanism) click here.

    CES Officiating Review – Important FEI Board decision - Clarifications

    Clarifications furthe to the communication emailed on 12 June regarding the CES Officiating Review.
    The decision made the Board was based on the results of the education dept survey which applies to all disciplines, it is a positive decision to ensure that the education system is synchronised with the fulfilment of requirements.
    To clarify, according to the education system, Officials need to fulfil the following main 3 requirements to maintain their status active for the 4 levels: (see Education System for each function & levels details):

    1. Passing the Annual online assessment
    2. Attending a course every 3 years
    3. Officiating at a minimum number of events in the relevant role (3 years’ time frame)

    The review in 2024 highlighted the lack of officiating opportunities for Officials in all disciplines to fulfil this requirement, it would have a serious impact and affect the running of the Sport.
    Whilst 1) and 2) above remains unchanged/effective, the Board agreed after much discussion to suspend the requirement number 3) until a new overall discipline working group examines the situation and presents its recommendations.

    Clarification regarding bit modifications

    Following recent discussions regarding certain pieces of tack and equipment, and in particular certain bits, we would like to provide a clarification regarding Art. 1044.6 of the FEI Veterinary Regulations.
     
    The article states that:
    Additional items or changes made to the bit that affects its function are not permitted, unless specifically permitted in the FEI TackApp and FEI Tack, Equipment and Dress Database.”
     
    This does not mean that modifications and/or changes have to be made by the Athlete (or any other individuals) in order for a bit not to be permitted. Any changes and/or modifications to a bit (including changes and/or modifications made directly by a manufacturer) that affects its function are not permitted, unless this has been explicitly permitted in the FEI Rules/FEI TackApp.
     
    We hope that this clarification will be helpful in order to apply the FEI Rules and related FEI TackApp in consistent manner.
