General Information

International judges with WCF judge permission are educated  according to internationally implemented rules. WCF judges must always adhere to certain rules. WCF has examinations only for an entire hair category. 
The inviting club is responsible to check the appropriate hair category,
if it is certified on the judge’s keycard. A WCF-judge may act as judge
only in those hair categories certified on his keycard. The hair categories, LH, SLH, SH, SIA/ORI and AB for all breeds, are certified in the last line of
the keycard. If there is any discrepancy, please contact the office of the WCF directly.
