Hat Standards


From 1 January 2023, BRC will no longer be accepting two hat standards and will therefore need to re-tag hats. In order to ensure riders are wearing the most up-to-date riding hats, please note that from the 1 January 2023, the following hat standards will no longer be accepted, due to the age of hats made to these standards:

          1.       PAS  O15 1998

          2.       SNELL 2001

A new colour of hat tag will be required for BE, PC and BRC from 1 January 2023.


It is anticipated for body protectors that BRC will continue to accept the 2009 BETA Purple labels until 1 Jan 2025.
