(Effective 01.04.2020) 

The conduct and practice of Judges officiating for the Kennel Union of Southern Africa in all forms of dogsport, whether as a Learner Judges, or Licensed Judges, must stand up to the highest level of scrutiny and the comportment of Judges should manifest their status within dogsport. Judging at Kennel Union-licensed events, or at events in foreign countries, requires the Judge to be a member of the Kennel Union and, apart from adherence to the normal Conditions of Membership, the Code of Ethics (Schedule 9) and the Terms and Conditions of Contract as per the Judging Contract (J1), Judges at any level shall be bound by this Code of Conduct and Practice for Judges Licensed by the Kennel Union of Southern Africa :

1.1. Judges shall maintain continuous and unbroken membership of the Kennel Union of Southern Africa throughout their judging career as contemplated in Article 25.2 of the Kennel Union Constitution.

1.2. Judges shall be mindful of their elevated and esteemed status in dogsport and in all their actions and dealings set an example for all participants in the sport.

1.3. In their communications with Club or Show Officials, Exhibitors and Competitors, Judges shall act with dignity, authority and decorum and their conduct in all interactions shall be above reproach.

1.4. In accepting assignments, whether local or foreign, Judges act as ambassadors of the Kennel Union and in word and deed shall take the utmost care to neither embarrass themselves, nor the Kennel Union.

1.5. Judges shall not accept an invitation to judge unless they are sure, or have ascertained, that they are entitled to do so.

1.6. Judges shall not accept an invitation to judge unless they can declare with a reasonable degree of certainty that they would be able and fulfil the assignment and be fit to do so in accordance with the expectations of the show-holding Club, or entity.

1.7. Judges who need to withdraw from assignments, for whatever reason, need to give notice of their intentions to withdraw at the earliest possible opportunity and in a manner prescribed by their contract.

1.8. Judges shall ensure that their arrangements regarding reimbursement of expenses by show-holding Clubs or entities are clear and unambiguous, thereby to avoid causing embarrassment or discontentment for either party.

1.9. Judges shall not claim any expenses from a show-holding Club or entity to which they are not entitled and for which they cannot provide proof of entitlement.

1.10. Judges shall embrace continued education as an integral part of their judging ethic and undertake self-motivated learning throughout their judging careers.

1.11. Judges shall keep themselves apprised of changes to the Kennel Union’s regulatory framework applicable to Judges and judging.

1.12. Judges shall keep themselves apprised of changes to the FCI’s regulatory framework applicable to Judges and judging and apply these regulations in an FCI judging environment unless they are in conflict with the Kennel Union’s Regulations.

1.13. Judges shall be meticulous in noting changes to Breed Standards of breeds they are licensed to judge and diligently apply these changes once they become effective.

1.14. At shows held under the Regulations of the FCI, Judges shall meticulously and consistently apply FCI Breed Standards to all the breeds they are contracted to judge.

Judges shall not solicit judging assignments, either locally or overseas, which includes, without limitation, pleading, asking, petitioning or canvassing for an assignment, either directly, or through an intermediary, in any manner or by any means whatsoever, except for Licensed Judgers, Senior Judges and All-breeds Judges volunteering to assist Club Committees in filling the roles at Non-Championship Shows pursuant to Schedule 10 Appendix 1 Regulations 4.1.3, 5.1.4 and 6.1.4.

1.17. Judges shall not solicit the entry of any Dog, Exhibitor and/or Competitor.

1.20. Prior to the show or event to be judged by them, Judges shall avoid socialising with persons likely to compete under them.

1.21. If placed in an unavoidable compromising position as a result of a close relationship with an Exhibitor/Competitor, if and when practicable, Judges shall encourage the option of a “lap of honour”, instead of subjecting dogs to assessment and placement for awards that may ultimately be deemed suspect.

Provincial Councils

Posted in KUSA Documents

The main provinces in South Africa have their own Provincial Council where KUSA affiliated clubs' representatives come together to discuss important policies and activities across various canine activities, from agility to breed shows and social awareness.

The Chairman of each Provincial Council serves on the Federal Council (Fedco) of KUSA, who meet twice a year to discuss matters brought forward by the Provincial Councils and the KUSA office. Fedco is empowered to make management and policy decisions for KUSA and its affiliates.
