Rules are sometimes created, amended or deleted to make the competition easier or fairer, or to reflect new technology or equipment that has become available.
Sometimes Rules are amended so that their meaning is made clearer.
The following describes the process involved in the creation, amendment and deletion of Rules.
Rule Change Process
Rule Change Requests for the Manual of Motorcycling Sport (MoM’s) – Must be Submitted by the end of February annually
Submissions for alterations, deletions or additions to the next annual MoM’s must be submitted by the end of February each year i.e. for the 2025 MoM’s Rule Change Requests must be submitted by the 28th of February 2024.
You can still submit a Rule Change Request post the end of February, however unless this is deemed urgent by the relevant Commission and/or the Rules and Technical Committee, this will not be considered for the following year. i.e. Rule Change Requests submitted in March 2024 will not be considered for the 2025 MoMs, but considered for the 2026 MoMs.
Immediate Rule Changes
In the event a rule requires an immediate amendment, stakeholders will be notified of the change, via a Bulletin/Press Release and a Rule Change Information Bulletin, which will be submitted to all State Controlling Bodies (SCB’s) to disseminate to affiliated clubs.
All Bulletins will be made available here
Commission Meeting Minutes Feedback – Must be Submitted by the end of July annually
The Commissions will review all Rule Change Requests at the Joint Commission Meeting, which is held in March each year. Rules and Technical will then review all Commission Minutes in April each year, and provide further comment.
These minutes, which detail all Rule Change Requests and corresponding comments from Commission and the Rules and Technical Committee, will be posted online in June each year, for SCB’s and stakeholders to view and submit feedback, by the end of July.
You can view the Commission Minutes here
Rules and Technical Committee Meeting
Comments from the public will be reviewed by the Rules and Technical Committee in August each year. The Committee will determine if the new rule or rule change will be approved or rejected.
If accepted, the rule will appear in bold in the in the following annual MoM’s.
