- Revised black out dates
- A requirement to offer a full programme (including 800m/1500m) in level 1 and 2 meets held at certain times of the year

In line with the recommendations of the ASA, the South East Region will adopt a dual approach in support of disability swimming.
- Disabled swimmers will be encouraged to swim alongside able-bodied swimmers in “mainstream” competitions; multi-disability events will be included in Regional championships.
- Specialised disability events will be used to encourage the growth of disability swimming.
The South East Region’s responsibility for competition will extend to ensuring that all swimmers have the opportunity to compete at their own level, through the provision of appropriate licensed meets.
Where there is a need, the Region will support meets that are not financially viable.
