LATE REGISTRATIONS & REQUEST FOR CHANGE OF THE DOG INFORMATION
As approved by the Board of Directors in its meeting on August 17, 2016, the following will be required to be microchipped:
Taking in consideration the importance of our breeders' interest and in order to provide clear guidance to our FCI judges as well as avoiding judging malpractice, the FCI General Committee made the following decision:
Countries where a ban on showing cropped/: in this case, the laws of the country being the highest authority, there is no possibility to show, at FCI sanctioned events, cropped/docked dogs of breeds customarily cropped/docked.
Countries where no ban on showing cropped/docked dogs exists: in this case, dogs of breeds customarily docked/cropped can be shown without any restriction, whether cropped/docked or not, at FCI sanctioned events, and there cannot be any discrimination, from the judges, between cropped and non-cropped dogs and between docked and non-docked dogs.
This measure applies from the date of its publication until December 31st, 2024.Payment for Registrations & Show Entry fees can now be deposited thru the following bank accounts:
