The Covid-19 pandemic should keep affecting our countries for a while, more or less severely depending on the nations.
In this context, with a view to promote again FCI international CACIB shows/FCI international working events and help their organisers, in full compliance with the national legislations, the FCI General Committee made the following decisions:
1. Since judges may feel unsure about or be prevented from travelling abroad, FCI International CACIB shows and FCI international working events can be held with judges from the judges list of the organising member or contract partner only.
2. Since national legislations may prove to be very strict in the future regarding the organisation of mass events, it is allowed to conduct FCI International CACIB shows without any competition being held in the main ring (BIG, BIS, …). However, breed judging (where CACIB is awarded) MUST be organised.
3. All organisers of FCI international CACIB shows and FCI international working events are required to comply - as a minimum - with their national legislation regarding hygiene and safety measures (social distance, masks, …) when organising an FCI international competition. We also remind our members and contract partners about our communication dated March 2, 2020, about the same matter.
The ABOVE decisions apply from the date of publication of this circular and are valid until December 31st, 2020.
