Horse Health Requirements
Updated sanctions – FEI Board approves update to the sanctions linked to the Horse Health Requirements.
The first in-person FEI Board meeting of the year took place on 21 and 22 June at the FEI Headquarters in Lausanne (SUI).
One of the main decisions taken by the Board was the approval of updates to the sanctions linked to the Horse Health Requirements, which have been in place in mainland Europe since 1 November 2021 and which were created to mitigate the effects of recent EHV-1 outbreaks.
The updated sanctions system is now applied in mainland Europe since 4 July 2022 and will be applied worldwide from 1 September 2022. All information regarding the updated sanctions system can be found in the Horse Health Requirements Hub.
Please note however, that the requirements that must be fulfilled have not changed and can be found on the Horse Health Requirements Hub.

Detection Time for Ciclesonide
The FEI has published a Detection Time of 120 hours (5 days) for CICLESONIDE, an inhaled corticosteroid used for the treatment of persistent asthma and obstructive airway diseases such as hay fever.
The Detection Time is valid for Ciclesonide inhalation solution 5.5mg per day during 5 days then 4.1mg per day during 5 days, administered via the Aservo Equihaler.
The Detection Time is based on research commissioned and approved by the European Horserace Scientific Liaison Committee (EHSLC).
Please note that a Detection Time is not the same as a withdrawal time. The Detection Time is the approximate period of time for which a drug (or its metabolite) remains in a horse’s system, such that it can be detected by the laboratory and is provided only as a guide.
The withdrawal time for a drug must be decided upon by the treating veterinarian and is likely to be based on the Detection Time and an added safety margin. This margin should be determined using professional judgment and discretion to allow for individual differences between horses such as size, metabolism, degree of fitness, recent illness or disease etc. to be taken into consideration.
The FEI List of Detection Times can be found here.
Please send any enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Filled with facts and figures, as well as reports from both on and off the field of play, covering sporting highlights and governance related milestones and processes, the FEI Annual Report provides an in-depth and transparent review of the international equestrian landscape in 2021.
