Re: Law Application Guideline – Head Contact Process

The World Rugby Executive Committee, acting in accordance with the World Rugby Bye- Laws, agreed to approve a Law Application Guideline for an expanded Head Contact Process (HCP) to assist the sanctioning process for contact with the head and neck, underscoring the sport’s commitment to head injury prevention.

The Head Contact Process Law Application Guideline is effective from March 10, 2021. The full Law Application Guideline is detailed on the World Rugby Website: https://www.world.rugby/the-game/laws/guidelines/17.

An overview of the Head Contact Process is set out in ANNEX ONE.
