According to the BYC information (http://www.britishfencing.com/2004%20Finals%20cir%C9lar%20updated.doc), you need:
"All equipment must conform with the current British Fencing Guidelines for Safety. Particular note will be taken of: (a) Masks must be without rust, holes or deformation and must have an elastic backstrap. (b) Clothing must be free from tears and damage or weakness. (c) A regulation plastron must be worn. (d) Gloves must overlap the sleeve. (e) Breeches must be worn, no alternatives will be allowed. (f) Socks must be of sufficient length to ensure that the legs are fully covered. (g) Blades must be of size two or smaller for the U14 Epee and Sabre events, and size 3 or smaller for U14 Foil events and the U10ís Championships must use size 0 blades. Please remember that all fencers are required to have a minimum of 2 working weapons on the piste. (h) Competitors equipment will be checked on the piste by the Referee and further spot checks will be made by the DT and Armourers. Competitors should note that weights will be used."

So a "regulation plastron" (I believe that can still be 350N at the moment, can anyone confirm that?) and "2 working weapons on the piste" (so they needn't be marraging blades).

In the Under 16 you do not need an 800N plastron but you do in the Under 18. You need two working weapons but they need not be maraging baldes.
