The FCI has also decided that the 15 judges listed in Sections A and B below are approved to judge all breeds recognised by the Kennel Club on its Breed Register (and those Imported Breed Register breed eligible for exhibition) at FCI International shows. This decision increases the previously agreed number of Kennel Club championship show judges approved for all UK breeds by the FCI.
