UK Staff Declaration Process Changed


Horses work on Warren Hill in Newmarket | Emma Berry

The process for how trainers declare staff to attend the racecourse using Racing Admin will change on Sept. 18, the British Horseracing Authority announced on Monday. There will be a new Declare Staff section on Racing admin which will include the staffmember’s:

  • Health status (green / amber / red)
  • Questionnaire status for that fixture (sent / completed / not sent)
  • Questionnaire Last Completed date (to help calculate a 7-day validity)

Also, the new area will give the ability to declare staff immediately after making a declaration to run, up until 1 p.m. on the day of declaration. The health screening questionnaires will be sent within 30 minutes of staff declarations (if less than 48 hours before the fixture.) There will be a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 to explain the new features. For more information and to access the webinar info, please go to
