Protective Headgear.  8.6.1

A rider whilst racing or training must wear properly affixed protective headgear   which must be of a hard/soft shell construction.
All competitors protective headgear must take the form of a hard/soft shell helmet which should conform to a recognised Standard   such as SNELL B95 (Snell Memorial Foundation), AUS/NZS   2063:96 (Australian and New Zealand standard), DIN 33-954   (TUEV Institute Germany), CPSC or EN 1078 (Europe). Other   Standards are available, but competitors and/or   parents/guardians should obtain proof that a Standard is   adequate for the purpose for which they intend to use the   article.  The current British Standard (BS 6863) is primarily intended   for use by young riders. This standard is not intended to   provide a complete specification for helmets for high speed or   long distance riding. A copy of the complete foreword to the   British Standard can be obtained from B.C.F. Headquarters.   It is emphasised that it is the responsibility of the rider (or the   parent or guardian if the rider is under 18 years of age) to   select a standard of protective headgear which offers   protection against head injury and does not restrict the rider’s   vision or hearing. This responsibility also applies to ensuring   that the headgear is undamaged and in good condition. It is   pointed out that any helmet which suffers damage (e.g. in the   case of an accident or through mishandling) may no longer   afford the same level of protection.
