Attention Eventing OCs - New Medical Rules for Eventing Competitions

As you know Eventing Medical Rules have changed, effective 1 January 2020.

To assist Organising Committees (OCs), or State Branches, in planning for the right medical services and ordering (some or all) from a private provider, we have a two-section document available: Part A: planning and Part B: ordering.

The planning document sets out clearly which services will come from a volunteer doctor (if you are fortunate enough to have one) and which will come from private service providers.

The intention being that OCs or State Bodies can use the planning part (Part A) to determine who will be providing which skill and then edit the request for quotation document (Part B) for the private paramedic service accordingly.

The ordering document includes a declaration of compliance by the private medical provider which must be returned and signed by them.

The Annex D1 requirements (around skills, not titles) should be clearer and easier to determine compliance or otherwise.

These are rules, not guidelines, meaning they must be complied with.

The documents are located on the EA website:

Please contact me or your state eventing co-ordinator if you have any questions.
