Rules Changes


In 2013 a number of rules were updated/created/amended at the FIE Congress.

Refer to the FIE rules below for the exact text of the rule or rule change.

*  In foil, beats on the lower third of the blade will now be considered parries by the opponent - t.56.4.
*  The absence of blade contact will no longer be a criterion for non-combativity - t.87.4.2.
*  There will be no penalty for simple corps a corps for foil and sabre, but the referee still calls “Halt!” - t.20.2 / t.20.3.
*  Visor masks will be forbidden in all weapons - Material Rules Annex A.2.1.2.
*  Insulting a referee will be an immediate Group 4 offence (Black card) - t.82.3(b).
*  Violently or dangerously throwing one’s mask is a Group 4 offence (Black Card) - t.87.3(b)
*  Fencers passing each other on the strip must do so completely before the referee calls “Halt!” - t.21.3
*  Foil and sabre fencers must have a spare mask wire at the side of the strip - t.45.
*  Foils and epees must be made of maraging steel - this is generally the case at the moment.

Full rule information can be found on the Documents and Policies web page on the AFF webpage.
