The Rules Zone

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 – headoffice@britishfencing.com – 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.

Not all the FIE Equipment and Publicity Rules apply to domestic competitions. Please click here for a list of variations.

Ranking events are competitions that count for BF Ranking points and in turn these rankings are typically used for selection for teams that compete internationally.
