Key Adjustments

  • Standardised automatic qualification standards to fence for GBR at Major Championships for all ages, where applicable.
  • Reflected the proposed changes set out in the new Ranking Scheme proposals for 2021-22 (e.g., Under 23 Ranking Scheme and recognition of EFC Under 23 events)
  • Added clauses allowing greater flexibility for the impact of Covid19 to events and athletes.
