FIFA Quality Programme for EPTS
Any provider of Electronic Performance and Tracking Systems (EPTS) who wishes to test and certify their EPTS technology (wearable & performance) to the FIFA standard shall follow the FIFA Quality Programme application process.
The FIFA Quality Programme for wearable EPTS devices was launched in 2017 with the aim of ensuring that wearable tracking systems used in football do not pose a danger to the players. Test criteria was developed following medical and mechanical testing and a test protocol reflects possible injury scenarios which are to be avoided. The FIFA Quality Programme for EPTS Performance aims to provide guidance to competition organisers when appointing a provider of tracking systems for their competition.
