The FEI recognises the need for FEI Officials to gain experience through officiating at events on a higher level than those available in their own countries. To enable National Federations to enhance the level of their officials (but not for status maintenance purposes), the FEI has developed a programme called:
Officials Exchange Programme (OEP)
This programme is available for all FEI Officials and facilitates the appointment of an official and gives the opportunity to be an official team member.
The Officials Exchange Programme will allow the FEI Officials to beneficiate from financial contributions for travel, accommodation and other related expenses.
The requests must be made on the official application form and sent to the respective FEI discipline department or FEI Veterinary department for approval.
