The FIM Racing Homologation Programme for helmets (FRHP) was implemented on 3rd June during the following three events: the FIM Superbike World Championship rounds in Jerez, last weekend in Misano, and the MotoGP in Barcelona.
During these events a new technical control procedure was implemented by the FIM in collaboration with Dorna’s technical department. This innovative process involves sewing a QR code label on the chin strap – as shown below – that needs to be clearly visible so as to be scanned via any QR Reader application.
The FIM technical steward is responsible for checking all the helmets available to riders before the first on track session of each racing weekend. The homologation is valid only if all the relevant accessories are as listed on the dedicated Webpage. The Webpage is accessible to anyone wanting to check the FRHP homologation.
As of today, seventeen registered brands have already passed the test – a full list of homologated brands can be found here: http://www.frhp.org/homologated-products.
It will become mandatory for all circuit racing competitions to adhere to the new FIM homologation process as of the first event of 2020. The FIM already has plans to extend the FRHP to off-road disciplines and championships over the next few years.
Full details of the programme can be found on the official website http://www.frhp.org/ – including a full list of homologated helmets.
