Regulation 22 - Standard Relating to the Use of Artificial Rugby Turf

Regulation 22 - Standard Relating to the Use of Artificial Rugby Turf

Technology in the area of artificial playing surfaces has improved over time and artificial playing surfaces are widely used including in Rugby. The IRB has produced the IRB Artificial Rugby Turf Performance Specification to set a minimum standard for artificial playing surfaces which may be used in rugby. The IRB Artificial Rugby Turf Performance Specification stipulates the testing and approval procedures which Manufacturers and other entities involved in the installation of artificial playing surfaces must comply with in order for their products to be approved for use in Rugby. The Game may not be played on any artificial surface which does not meet the IRB Artificial Rugby Turf Performance Specification, the requirements of Regulation 22 and Law 1 of the Laws of the Game. The IRB Artificial Rugby Turf Performance Specification will be amended over time as technology and research evolves in the area of artificial playing surfaces.
