Black Card Note: in GBR Domestic Events the fencer is immediately excluded from the competition and suspended from the remainder of the tournament. Details must be reported to British Fencing head office for consideration under the Disciplinary Process, which may result in the imposition of additional penalties. The additional FIE penalty of two months suspension from competition only applies automatically to FIE Events. BF reserves the right to suspend a fencer from club and competition activity whilst a disciplinary investigation takes place, particularly in cases where an incident resulted in harm to others.
