Already planned for next season is a change in the rule which prevents retrospective action being taken on incidents witnessed by the referee.
Wigan forward Callum McManaman's knee-high tackle on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara last season fell into that category, and the FA's director of governance Darren Bailey confirmed a similar incident during the new season will be looked at again.
He told Sky Sports News: "If those circumstances arise again, we will be able to take a look at those issues.
"We think that's a step forward, but we think it's a proportionate step forward. What we don't want to do is create the impression we'll be reviewing every incident every Monday.
"We want the referees to make the calls on the day because the team that has been sinned against should have the benefit of any action on the day."
