Any athlete wishing to be selected for Great Britain at FIE (including Satellites) or EFC competitions must compete in the National Championships in the relevant category - Cadet, Junior or Senior.

Only in expeceptional circumstances will an exemption be granted, which must be sought in advance and received in the form of written approval via British Fencing Head Office. For further information please see here.

Fencers representing GB in the U23 European Championships will be automatically exempt from the requirement to compete at the Senior National Championships 2017 to be eligible to represent GB in FIE and EFC competitions. There will be no related adjustment to ranking schemes and selectors will be informed of the clash.
