designed to facilitate safe competition and should be seen as mini mum requirements. It continues to be important for the sport that athletes have times that have a solid provenance and have been achieved at meets run with integrity. These adjustments will remain in place for all meets takin g place up until 10th March 2022 inclusive. At that time it is anticipated that the previous requirements will be reinstated.
