Weapon Check / Inspection

We will adhere during the Team-EM to the current FIE Equipment Regulations 2022:
Please find the current regulations here:

We will apply these rules about the equipment with two exceptions:

  • National colours on the breeches are not mandatory in this event
  • Transparent plugs on wires are not mandatory in this event

From Wednesday, May 25, 2022, 2 pm, you can hand in your equipment for inspection at the sports centre "q-beyond ARENA". The weapon control station will be open according to the hours shown in the schedules.

Material will be checked according to the table below. Material will be accepted only for competitions scheduled on the following day. In particular cases the inspection will be possible on the same day from 7:30 am. Fencers competing with more than one weapon may have all their material checked at once on the day before their first competition.

Material has to be submitted in fencing bags labelled with the name and the federation of the fencer. No further stuff may reside inside.

President of DT Benoit Pincemaille: It is strongly recommended but not mandatory that the connecting plug of the body wires be in transparent material
