Notes & Updates for Club Secretaries

Regulations will be introduced with effect from 1st January 2020 to confirm that no person should be appointed who has never judged before, unless they have undertaken the new Kennel Club mandatory requirements
All aspiring judges must have completed the introductory education and training

Anyone hoping to judge for the first time in 2020, and those with some judging experience but not yet on our Breed Council B list, should now work towards meeting all of the Level 1 requirements

Eligibility to judge during transition period 1st January 2021 - 31st December 2021:

Breed Club Shows: Open & Limited (any number of classes)
Approved Level 2 status under JCF or on our Boxer Breed Council B list or above
Judges contract wording for shows up to 31st December 2021
The Kennel Club strongly advises that inviting Clubs include the following wording in judging contracts for this period for the types of show listed above: “In accepting this appointment I confirm that I comply with the requirements of the Judges Competency Framework or Kennel Club Regulation F21b”.

Championship Shows: CC appointments for shows up to 31st December 2021
Appointments at Championship Shows held up to 31.12.21 are unaffected by these changes
For CC appointments for shows held on or after 1st January 2022 Clubs will be able to submit nominations only for judges at the appropriate JCF level

Championship Shows: CC appointments for shows on or after 1st January 2022
The CC allocation is not yet awarded for 2022, and Clubs are strongly advised not to appoint judges for 2022 or beyond until the allocation is announced
Guidance will be issued at that stage
Nominations will be accepted only for judges at the appropriate JCF level

Additional Information
This selection of judges under the JCF will be made easier by the fact that all judges at all levels will be listed on the online Find A Judge facility
The Kennel Club strongly recommends that Level 2 judges are chosen for these shows wherever possible, as these people will have taken and passed a breed-specific exam
It is envisaged that this in turn will help to increase entries, as will the recently announced breed club-supported classes at open shows
