KENNEL CLUB UPDATES JUDGING REGULATIONS AND CODE OF BEST PRACTICE – 24 July 2019 – The Judges Committee and the Board consider there is value in bringing forward a number of new show regulations and a range of additional supporting statements in the code that recognises and protects best practice and underpins and protects the integrity of judges at every level of show. This is because, in all areas where pedigree dog competitions are discussed, there is always a range of opinions expressed about judges. Their decisions and practices are critiqued and commented on in a variety of different ways and expressed across many different media. Click to read the full Press Release

The new regulations will be effective from 1 January 2020 and may be read at the following link: bit.ly/32O698c where all changes are marked in bold. A new edition of the Code of Best Practice for Judges may be accessed on the Kennel Club website at bit.ly/2K3XPbY.

JUDGES COMPETENCY FRAMEWORK – Judges Competency Framework on immediate hold. – 7 June 2019 – The Kennel Club Board, recognising the substantial support given by Members at the recent AGM to the proposal "that all aspects of the JCF’s planned phased introduction be put on hold whilst a complete assessment of the scheme is carried out by an independent review body", has placed the planned implementation of the framework on immediate hold.
Whilst the implementation of the JCF remains on hold the traditional processes for approval of first-time appointments to judge breeds with Challenge Certificates, Groups and Best in Show will continue unchanged. – Click to read more on the KC Website.

PROOF OF POSTING - The Kennel Club wishes to remind exhibitors of its Proof of Posting (POP) policy. The Kennel Club is aware that on occasion entries do get lost in the post. However, a small number of exhibitors may be exploiting the Proof of Posting system by various means. In order to address this unsportsmanlike behaviour, the Kennel Club uses a Proof of Posting database which lists everyone who makes an entry on the day of a show, and, in particular, whether Proof of Posting was provided on the day. The Kennel Club will contact exhibitors who have not provided Proof of Posting or Proof of Online Entry following the show. read more.
