INFORMATION AND MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS FOR THE MEDICAL COVERAGE OF FEI EVENTS
International events organisers are required by the FEI to provide adequate medical coverage at their event. This includes the on-site presence of personnel trained in emergency medical care and an appropriate medical emergency action plan for the evacuation, emergency treatment, and transport of injured Athletes (article 109.10, FEI General Regulations).
When planning for medical coverage, organisers must refer to the Mandatory Guidelines issued by the FEI. Additional discipline specific requirements may also apply in some disciplines in accordance with the relevant sports rules and must be taken in consideration.
Additionally, the FEI's recommendations on the diagnosis and management of Concussion at FEI Events also provide essential information as well as a detailed process to plan for and manage concussion issues on competition sites.
Organisers are welcome to send an email to the FEI Medical Committee for advice on the medical coverage planning of their event.
The FEI’s general regulatory requirements on athlete safety and welfare are set out in the FEI General Regulations.
Additional discipline-specific requirements may be found in the relevant Sports rules.
Anti-Doping matters are regulated in the FEI’s Anti-Doping Rules for Human Athletes (ADRHA).
