The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 54 Pa.B. 2336 (April 27, 2024).

58 Pa. Code § 25.11. Safety code.

§ 25.11. Safety code.

 (a)  A kickboxing event may not be started unless there is on the premises:

   (1)  An ambulance, together with emergency equipment.

   (2)  A portable resuscitator with oxygen and appropriate endotracheal tubes and a qualified operator.

 (b)  A contestant is not permitted to begin a round without a fitted mouthpiece. Failure to begin a round with the mouthpiece inserted shall be deemed by the referee to be a ‘‘delay of bout’’ foul, and shall draw a warning or penalty as determined by the referee.

 (c)  Whenever a mouthpiece is knocked out by a fair blow or a foul tactic, or whenever the mouthpiece is dropped or spit out by the contestant, the referee shall call time out, stop the bout, allow the contestant’s seconds to clean off the mouthpiece and replace the mouthpiece. Willful dropping or spitting out of the mouthpiece by a contestant shall also be deemed a ‘‘delay in bout’’ foul and the contestant shall be penalized accordingly by the referee.

 (d)  The promoter shall provide at kickboxing events an adequate supply of latex, disposable, hygienic laboratory gloves of a type approved by the Commission, to be worn by the seconds, referees and others having direct contact with the contestants during the kickboxing event. A kickboxing referee is not permitted to enter the ring unless the referee is wearing hygienic gloves. A second is not permitted to work in that capacity during a kickboxing event unless the second is wearing hygienic gloves. No other individual is permitted to examine or medically treat a kickboxer during a kickboxing event unless he is wearing hygienic gloves except where the nature of treatment or examination makes the wearing of hygienic gloves impractical during the procedure.
