The Kennel Club's new Judges Competency Framework (JCF) will 'go live' in the second half of 2019, running alongside the current system for a transition period and be fully operational from January 2022. The requirement that all judges must be licenced at JCF Level 1 will be introduced from 1 January 2020.

The Kennel Club's online 'Find A Judge' listing will be extended to provide reports of all eligible judges across all types of show.
