My helmet is a Snell M2010, i was reading in the rulebook that all helmets must be manufactured within 5 years of the of the event date. Does this mean all stamps have to be Snell M2015?

No, M2015 certification labels weren't available for sale until October 1st, 2014. So you could have a helmet manufactured in July 2013 that has the Snell M2010 cert on it and still be within the 5 yr time frame for date of manufacture.

You need to look for the manufacturer date tag. It's located inside the helmet usually under the liner.

Some helmet manufacturers stamp the build date on the D-ring for the chin strap. It took me a while to find that on my Arai...

To my knowledge, Arai is the only one who puts it on the D Ring...which is super convenient for tech! Bell also does it nicely and easy to read with a clear date code sticker on the back of the helmet.
