2015 BRC Hat Rules
We have been notified that the European Commission have made changes to the EN1384 hat standard (this also includes BSEN1384)
and it will no longer be recognised as an acceptable standard
for riding hats in the UK.
However, in order to phase out the use of EN1384 and/or BSEN1384 hat
standards, the BRC 2015 / 2016 hat rules will be changed as follows:
There will be no changes to the accepted hat standards for 2015 and hats will continue to be tagged with the BRC blue hat tags.
However, from 1 January 2016, ALL hats must be checked and tagged with a new ORANGE
BRC hat tag. All hats which only meet the standard EN1384 or BSEN1384, and do not comply with another standard off the above list, WILL NOT be accepted and therefore will not be
permitted for any BRC competition. Hats which bear EN1384 or BSEN1384 along with another standard from the above list, will be tagged. For example, BSEN1384 & PAS015
(1998 or 2011) along with the Kitemark, would be acceptable, but not BSEN1384 on its own.
From 1 January 2016, no hats with a peak of any description will be permitted for the XC
phase of any BRC competition. Hat covers and silks will be permitted.
Please note: that Pre-liminary team entries have to be paid for in advance of competitions. This is payable by members but for convenience the club pays for this and recoupes the monies.
If you put your name down we ask that you pay £15 deposit for each combination and qualifier entered, the club can not afford to make payments if you decide to not attend.
Also by entering a qualifier you must be available for the championships.
If you do not pay the deposit along with your entry then we are sorry but your entry could be at risk.
Thank you for your understanding.
