For the qualification times just announced for British swimmers vying for a spot on the British 2017 FINA World Championships roster, the standards across all events, both men’s and women’s are faster for 2017 than they were for 2015 Kazan qualification.

As with previous competitions’ qualifying process, there is a secondary qualification table containing times within 2% of the primary table. Athletes recording a time that betters or equals that listed in the secondary table may be considered for selection, with final discretion held by the National Performance Director.
