Publication of KC Rules & Regs and Specimen Schedules

Thursday, December 08, 2005 at 17:20 Kennel Club Liaison Council

From January 2006, the KC policy for the effective date for most regulation amendments will change to 1st January, unless an amendment is, for example, for health and safety reasons. Previously, regulation amendments customarily took effect from 1st July each year. The recently introduced Regulation Booklets will now be published annually on 1st January and will be available for each discipline. Whilst changing its policy, the Kennel Club will continue to endeavour to minimise the number of amendments where this is possible.

The exception to this, for next year only, will be the Field Trials booklet. As a result of the major review of the regulations, this booklet will be issued in the Spring after the current Field Trial season has ended and regulations for this discipline will come into force from 1st July 2006. From this point onwards Field Trial regulations will be effective from 1st January each year in line with all other disciplines.

Previously, new regulations and amendments to regulations were implemented upon publication in the Year Book. Unfortunately this has meant that many new regulations were introduced in the middle of the show and trial season which in some instances created an inconsistent approach from one show or trial to another.

The Year Book is traditionally published on 1st July each year, which is the first suitable date after the Kennel Club’s Annual General Meeting and the election of General Committee Members, Vice Presidents and Honorary Life Members etc. In order to preserve the integrity of the Year Book as a complete record, the revised regulations will also be included in this publication.

Details of all amended regulations will now be published in the December Kennel Gazette, prior to the publication of the new regulation booklets in January each year giving prior warning to all show and trial officials, exhibitors and competitors. It is hoped that this will assist everyone involved in the various canine disciplines.

In line with the above, the Kennel Club would like to advise all Society secretaries and show or trial organisers that Kennel Club specimen schedules have been updated to include relevant regulation amendments which come into effect on 1st January 2006. These can be obtained from the Kennel Club by contacting the Shows, Trials and Awards Department on 020 7518 1013.
