SEI and US Lacrosse Unveil Certification Program for Women's Lacrosse Equipment



The Safety Equipment Institute and US Lacrosse introduced a new certification program for women’s lacrosse headgear and goggles on Nov. 1. The action supports recently approved rules language by the US Lacrosse board of directors’ executive committee, which requires that equipment made after Jan. 1, 2018, be SEI-certified.

The new program, the first since SEI became a subsidiary of ASTM International, will certify headgear and goggles to meet the requirements of two ASTM standards: specification for headgear used in women’s lacrosse (excluding goalkeepers) (F3137) and specification for eye protectors for women’s lacrosse (F3077).
