HPA Polo Helmet Regulations for 2018

After much extended speculation, the HPA has made the decision to amend helmet regulations for the sport of polo and has produced a list of helmets that comply with the safety ruling. The official statement from the HPA is below:
“From 01 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.
Casablanca will be introducing a new helmet called the “NEU” which meets PAS015:2011 with a target launch date of 1st November. La Martina are also bringing out a new helmet (no name released) and testing procedures are to be conducted at the end of September. Falcon has decided not to certify their helmet.
Please note, there is a new standard, BSEN1384:2017, which has just been published. Our policy is to follow the BHA helmet standards.”
