2018 Helmet Regulation Change

New rules are in force now!

As of 1 January this year, the amended HPA regulation regarding polo helmets has come into force, so if you haven’t been to the shops yet, quick – get out there now!

The official statement from the HPA is below:
“From 1 January 2018, helmets must be type approved to the standard PAS015:2011 with CE mark (type approval must be performed by a UK headquartered Noted Body for Personal Protective Equipment), SNELL E2001, VG1 01.040 2014-12, or UTAC/CRITT 04/2015.
Please note, there is a new standard, BSEN1384:2017, which has just been published. Our policy is to follow the BHA helmet standards.”
The HPA has provided this link to view the BHA Helmet Regulations. The list of approved helmets is below.
