A revised edition of the BETA standard was published and adopted by BETA in 2018 as the new BETA standard, but will run alongside the 2009 version for at least the next 5 years whilst the older stock works through the market.
In performance terms there is no difference in the amount of protection offered by the two versions. The 2009 version will cease manufacture at the end of 2018, but there will still be a supply at retail stores which disciplines and rider organisations will continue to recognise and accept until further notice.
