You have received an email to inform you that a suggestion has been made by someone in the equestrian community?
You want to know where you will find the suggestions and how to accept them?
The suggestion platform has been put in place to facilitate the correction of mistakes or omissions existing in the content of our database.
The platform allows authenticated people from our equestrian community to suggest corrections, modifications or additional data via the FEI Suggestion platform, in order to improve the quality of data present on the FEI Database in relation to your athletes and horses.
When a suggestion is made, the corresponding National Federation will receive an email to notify them that a suggestion has been made to modify or correct some information.
It is the responsibility of the National Federation to verify the proposed information and to accept or reject the suggestion.
Certain suggestions will need a second approval from the FEI.
Go to http://www.data.fei.org/
When logged in to the FEI Database with NF Horse Admin or NF Person Admin access you will find Suggestions under the Horse and Person tabs.
This will take you to the Suggestion Platform Dashboard.
You can also access the Suggestions platform via the link you receive in the notification email.
The subject of these new notification emails is: [FEI Suggestion platform] New suggestions
Here you need to follow the link to validate or reject the suggestion.
The link will take you to the Suggestion platform Dashboard.
Suggestion Platform Dashboard
Your Dashboard will display all suggestions for Athletes and Horses administered by your National Federation.
You can filter by All, Athletes or Horses.
Each action shows the FEI ID number, the name of the Athlete or Horse, the relevant NF that needs to validate the suggestion as well as the date and author of the suggestion.
Status of Validation process
Each suggestion contains a Status column showing who needs to validate the suggestion and the status of this process.
The code on the Dashboard explains the different status’ available.

Submitting the validated Suggestions
Each validated suggestion needs to be submitted so that it appears on the FEI Database.
Once submitted you will receive a message to show that you have been successful.
Here you can access the profile page of the Athlete or Horse or return to the Dashboard.
Additional FEI Validation
