We are receiving many enquiries with regards to the new Helmet regulations brought in January 1st 2017. VAS Ltd follow Equestrian Australia's rules to maximise safety in the sport with riders competing in VAS Ltd competitions must be wearing an approved helmet with the chin strap fastened at all times.
VAS Ltd will be phasing in the new rules over the next 12 months. Remember EN1384 standard helmets are no longer approved by EA but if your helmet ALSO has the PAS015, ASTM F1163, AS/NZS 3838, ARB HS 2012, SNELL E2001, VGI it is approved to be used and will not need to be replaced. For VAS Ltd Competitions during 2017 the EN1384 helmet is still approved.
