You have been appointed as IT Provider at an international Event and you must provide the FEI with the Event results? 

You want to use XML format in order to submit the XML results files directly to the FEI web interface?


The FEI IT department provides XML format for Automated Results Processing that was developed to facilitate data exchange between Organising Committees, National Federations, and the FEI. This results format can be used for any of the 7 FEI disciplines.


You need first to complete the NDA Form (Non-disclosure agreement) to get an access to the FEI Database and to upload by yourself XML results files.

You also need XSD files to implement the XML format in your own software on our website. Please find the XSD files for each FEI Disciplines by clicking here.
