Officials’ News: FINA Rules 2017-2021

Following the publication of the FINA Swimming Rules for 2017-2021, the British Swimming – Swimming Officials Group have produced the attached summary of the rule changes. The implementation date of these changes for British Swimming and Home Country events will be Monday 2nd October 2017.

It is still a requirement for any official wishing to re-licence to have attended a FINA Rules Update presentation during the 4 year term of their licence in order to satisfy Mandatory Element 6 and details of these will be published/circulated by your local coordinators.

The full version of the new rules for all disciplines, including an explanation of the changes and associated interpretations for swimming, can be found at https://www.fina.org/content/fina-rules
