    • ANKC Press Release - Allowable Colours

      The ANKC Ltd Board resolved at the May 2016 Board meeting for the following motion passed at the October 2015 Board meeting as well as a subsequent electronic motion be rescinded prior to the endorsement of a recommendation received from the National Breed Standards Coordination Group.

      It was unanimously RESOLVED that the following two motions be rescinded:

      1. Motion 7.2.1 Board Meeting October 2015:

      "It was resolved that in reference to colour, a note be included on any breed standard stating that ‘highly undesirable’ is to be interpreted as not acceptable for inclusion on the Main Register.

      It was agreed this motion should only address the colour section of standards initially and any further references to ‘highly undesirable’ in other sections of the standards could be dealt with by electronic motion".

      and

      2. Electronic Motion

      "It was resolved that ANKC Ltd determine that 1st January 2017 be the implementation date for the following resolution passed at the October 2015 Board meeting and that prior to that date the Breed Standards Co-ordination Group report to the Board on the implications of implementing this decision".

      It was then resolved that the Board endorse the National Breed Standards Coordination Group’s recommendation:

      "Effective from 1 January 2017 except in the case where National Breed Councils or Breed Clubs have nominated certain Colours not to be placed on the Main register as per regulations Part 6, 6.2.4 Special Conditions for Registration of Certain Breeds (Amended 04/15 EAP)
      All other undesirable colours are to be placed on the Main register if desired by the Breeder.
      The onus is to be placed on Judges to non-award undesirable/highly undesirable colours.
      Prior to 1 January 2017, National Breed Councils or Breed Clubs will be invited so that they can nominate certain colours for their specific breeds not to be placed on the Main Register for health reasons and to provide evidence for their request".

      All Breed Clubs, or breeders who have breeds which do not have a National Breed Council or a Breed Club, are requested to forward to their Member Body office a listing of what colours for their specific breed are not to be placed on the Main Register for health reasons and to provide evidence for this request by no later than COB Friday, 11 November 2016.
