The FA and the other British football associations will lead a bid on behalf of UEFA to change how VAR is used, particularly in relation to tight offside calls.
Offsides have been the most controversial aspect of VAR with players having had goals ruled out after being judged offside by a barely visible distance.
Jesse Lingard gives England the lead, but it's overturned for offside after VAR's intervention!

The Times of London report today that it was agreed that the associations work together to change the VAR process so that offsides decisions are reviewed on clear and obvious mistakes rather than just tiny infractions, that possibly fall within the margins of error for the system.
Jesse Lingard (see above), Roberto Firmino and Raheem Sterling have been among those this season to have goals ruled out on such tight margins by VAR.
Ceferin said: "I have constantly said that there needs to be a tolerance that reflects the margin for error in the system. VAR is not perfect but it can help us if we are more flexible with its implementation.
"It is right that, as the continent which has used VAR most widely, the UEFA based members on IFAB are looking to improve VAR.
"There is no shame in adjusting the system using the experience we have gained - that is what most sensible regulators and lawmakers do"
FIFA need to be persuaded on the merit of these potential adjustments to the video system, including potentially widening the lines used to judge offside.
A proposal then needs to be made to the lawmaking body IFAB. The four British football associations and FIFA make up that group, with FIFA holding half of the eight votes, so convincing the World governing body is critical.
Arsene Wenger's new role as FIFA's senior advisor on IFAB issues means the former Arsenal manager could be key to getting the UEFA proposals through. The issue was raised at a meeting in Belfast recently, but no decision was made.
