Other points which may be of use to answer any questions:

  • EA standards do not mandate helmet replacement after 5 years (Manufacturers do recommend replacement of helmets older than 5 years however, that is not an EA requirement, onus is on the rider)
  • Helmet taggers are only checking compliance of the helmet against EA Standards, not condition, age or any other factors.  An approved helmet is one than meets the EA Standards.
  • The colour of the tag will only change if EA Standards change
  • If helmets are being tagged at an outlet/franchise (eg. Horseland) this must be done by an approved EA Tagger
  • Does the Helmet Tagger need to be an EA member? Being an EA member is preferred, however it is understood some OC members are not EA members and this can be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
