Helmet Tagging for Driving Mandatory from 1 July 2022

The EA Helmet Tagging System is a process whereby athletes have their helmet inspected for compliance against the currently approved safety standards and then tagged indicating the helmet complies.  This was a safety measure firstly introduced with Eventing in 2019 and is now being rolled out across other EA disciplines.

Helmet Tagging will be mandatory for all EA Affiliated Driving events from 1 July 2022.  EA accredited helmets are compulsory for all on the carriage, at any time.

Keep in touch with your local Driving Club, State Equestrian Branch, and see EA helmet tagging times and days to find out where you can get your helmet tagged.

Remember, ensuring that your helmet is compliant and safe is always the responsibility of the athlete and a compliant helmet is mandatory under the EA General Regulations.  Helmet tagging only indicates that the helmet complies with current EA standards.
