The Racing Officials Accreditation Program (ROAP) is conducting a survey on interference rules for flat racing.

The interference rules in North America, while not uniform, are similar in philosophy (known as Category 2).

There is a differing philosophy of racing adjudication used in other parts of the world (known as Category 1).

The goal of this survey is to get a better understanding of the stakeholders’ preferences as to how races should be adjudicated in North America.
