At The UK Kennel Club meeting of 14 January, the Committee agreed the following changes to B Regulations.
Amendments are underlined, and effective immediately.
Applications to register imported dogs must be accompanied by:
(1) A copy of the official export pedigree as supplied by an organisation in the country of export recognised by the Kennel Club, unless the dog is being registered under the provisions of B2c. This export pedigree should show the registered ownership of the person importing the dog.
(2) If the export pedigree does not show the registered ownership of the person importing the dog, the applicant should send a copy of the registration certificate issued by the Kennel Club of the country from which the dog is being imported in the importer’s name.
In addition, the Committee also agreed that the following new Regulation be added at B8b. with the existing B8b. being reclassified as B8c. This to be effective immediately.
B8b. Removal of an Affix.
If a dog is transferred back to the ownership of the original breeder/s, an affix added to its name as per sub-para 8a above, may be removed at the request of the original breeder/s.
However, this may only be done provided that:
(1) The written consent of the person/s who added the affix is obtained.
(2) The dog has not gained entry into the UK Kennel Club Stud Book.
Once an affix has been removed, no further alterations or amendments to the name will be permitted.
