o European Championships

o ISSF Youth Cups
o ESC European Cups

• Minor international matches run under ISSF rules where the athlete is competing as part of a formally selected GBR or Home Country team.
• Major domestic championships and competitions run under ISSF Rules, which play a part in the selection process for GBR teams, including (but not limited to):
o British Championships
o Home Country Championships
• Alternative domestic matches can be recognised for athletes who live outwith the UK, subject to prior approval by the Performance Group. For example for those located in the USA:
o USA Shooting National Championships
o USA Shooting Selection Matches
The above list will remain subject to review, and may be varied at the discretion of the Performance Group.
Records will be ratified by a small group, consisting of the relevant discipline Head Coach, the Performance Director and CEO, on production of the official results of the competition at which a new record is believe to have been achieved.
For domestic competitions, any athlete believed to have set a new British Record should be subject to a mandatory post-match equipment control check.
For Olympic events, it will only be possible to set a Qualification Round record at a competition where there the match forms part of the qualification process towards a Final. This therefore excludes the likes of the self-squadded aggregate matches at domestic 10m competitions, but not the elimination stages of domestic 50m competitions.
It will not be possible to set a British Record where the course of fire is shot as part of longer course of fire – for example by taking the first 40 shots of a 60 shot match in 10m Air events or by taking the first 75 targets for a female athlete competing in a 100, 125 or 200 clay target competition.
It will be possible to set a British Record in a decimally-scored Rifle event where the match is shot on Paper targets, provided that the targets are scored by an electronic scoring machine.
It will not be possible to set a British Record in a decimally-scored Rifle event, when the results displayed on the firing point monitor during the match are integer. An exception will be made for Finals, where the scores are available on a scoreboard visible to the athletes during the competition.
It will not be possible to set a British Record in a decimally-scored Rifle event, when the competition results are based on the integer score, but the decimal score is made available separately.
