25TH JANUARY 2018 - UPDATE FROM THE HPA REGARDING HELMETS/HATS

As you are aware the HPA have introduced the minimum standard for polo helmets they must be type approved to at least one of the standards PAS015:2011 with CE mark, SNELL E2001, VG1 01.040 2014-12, or UTAC/CRITT 04/2015.

PAS015:1998 is the previous version of PAS015:2011.

Due to extended lead times retailers often carried high stocks of helmets and therefore there are still helmets available that are labelled PAS015:1998.

The HPA will allow the use of helmets that are labelled PAS015:1998.
