What "governing body" are we talking about. I hope you don't say USAF because they only have say in what you do if you allow them to have say in what you do.

Pulled from their website:

"All equipment is reconditioned to meet all NOCSAE standards.  Any
helmet that does not meet these standards is rejected.  Helmets can be
rejected for a number of reasons including but not limited to age,
cracks, deformities and failing the drop test.

Helmets that pass the initial inspection then move through the
reconditioning process being double checked at every station.  Helmets
are broken down, removing all old hardware and sticker/decals, buffed
and washed.  They are then either custom painted to match team colors
or cleaned and waxed to put a shine back on the helmet.  All parts are
checked and any parts that are defective are replaced with new parts
that meet the original manufacturer standards.  Any face mask that does
not meet NOCSAE standards is also replaced with a mask that meet the
original manufacturer standards."
