The FRHP Programme for barriers has been launched at the end of the year 2020. The main objective of this new programme is to have a better control on all the parameters regarding the FIM Homologation for barriers, but also to facilitate the labour of the scrutineers on the circuits.
Despite the difficult conditions experienced throughout the year 2020, the FIM and the CTI have launched the new programme in December, considering the positive global forecast for 2021.
We are now at the end of August, and raw material availabilities and prices increase have added to the current problems. After discussions with the main CCR barriers manufacturer in July, the CTI and the FIM have decided to postpone the entry into force of the new programme until July 1st 2022.
This will give 6 more moths for manufacturers to comply with the homologations test for their barriers and during this extra time, they will also be able to sell their barrier according to the “old” programme.
Starting in 2032, so 10 years after the launch of the FRHP Programme for barriers, CCR barriers produced in the framework of the “old” programme shall no longer be used to ensure that only state of the art protective barriers are used.
