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.
