1.1.1 Data, which must be provided for each judge and guest-judge

 

According to the Show Rules B.2.2 for each judge the following data must be provided:

 

  • country, where the judge lives
  • organization, by which the judge is licensed
  • hair categories, for which the judge is licensed: AB, LH, SLH, SH and SOSH

 

This data must be provided for each judge, regardless wether the judge is a WCF-judge, a WCF-licensed guest-judge or a judge from another organization.

 

If this data is not provided completely in the license application and the organizing club does not provide the complete data within a given time frame, the judge in question cannot be licensed in the license and consequently is also not allowed to judge on this show.

 

1.1.2 Suspended or expelled judges are not permitted to be invited

 

It is not permitted to invite judges to WCF-shows

 

  • against whom a disciplinary action is pending
  • who are suspended or expelled by their own organization
  • whom the WCF has expelled from its shows (see the messages in WCF-actual)
  • whose organization is not recognized by the WCF (see the messages in WCF-actual).

 

The judges are checked by the Show Commission in co-operation with the Executive Board, latest when the copy of the license has been received.
In case of a negative result of the check the judge will be removed from the license, this will be communicated to the organizing club, and the license
will be reissued again.

 

1.1.3 Invitation of judges for two 1-day shows, who are not licensed to judge all hair categories

 

If two consecutive 1-day shows are organized and judges not licensed for all hair categories are invited, it must be indicated clearly on the license application, which hair categories are judged on which day of these 2 days, otherwise the license will not be issued.

 

This will also be stated on the license itself. See chapter License below.

 

There may be awarded 2 certificates in those hair categories, for which different judges are invited on each day.
For all other hair categories only 1 certificate can be awarded.
This will also be stated on the license itself.

 

We want to bring to your attention that on each day in principal only 1 certificate is awarded.
For an exception for 2 certificates per day has to be applied to the Board.

 

 
1.3 2-days shows, 3 1-day shows, etc.

 

All shows in WCF are:

 

  • 1-day shows

2-days shows wiht only 1 certificate and only one BIS have to be granted by the Board. For the permission has to be applied before submitting the license application, and the permission has to be attached to the license application.

 

3 1-day shows with 3 certificates, on each day 1 certificate, and 3 BIS have to be granted by the Board. For the permission has to be applied before submitting the license application, and the permission has to be attached to the license application.

 

All other types of shows always need the permission from the Board, therefore the permission has to be requested from the Board before submitting the license application!

 
2. License
2.1 Data of the judges

 

Each license issued includes the following data for each WCC judge:

 

  • country, where the judge lives
  • organization, by which the judge is licensed
  • hair categories, for which the judge is licensed.

 

The judges will be indicated on the license as follows:

 

  • WCF-judge
        for example: judge A, country (LH,SLH,WCF)
  • WCF-guest-judge, if the judge is licensed by the WCF as guest-judge
        for example: judge B, country (AB,WCF-guest)
  • non-WCF-judge, if the judge is not licensed by the WCF as guest-judge.
        For example: judge-C, country (AB,non-WCF)
  • WCC-judges are indicated as WCC-judges
        For example: judge-D, country (SH,WCC)
 

2.2 Counting of judges according to the 2:1 rule

 

  • WCF-licensed guest-judges are counted like WCF-judges.
  • All WCC-judges are counted like WCF-judges.
  • LOOF-judges are counted as non-WCF-judges.
 

2.3 Judges on two 1-day shows, who are not licensed for all hair categories

 

In two consecutive 1-day shows it will be clearly stated on the license, which judge judges on which day.


For example:
judge-A, country (LH,SLH,WCF): 1st day
judge-B, country (SLH,SH,WCF): 1st and 2nd day

 

Consequently, there can be awarded only 1 certificate for LH on the 1st day.
Consequently, there can be awarded only 1 certificate for SH on the 2nd day.
Consequently, there can be awarded 2 certificates for SLH, 1 certificate on the 1st day and 1 certificate on the 2nd day .

 

According to the Show Rules it is possible to organize shows, where not all hair categories are present.

 

2.4 Date of the 1st issue of the license, version-number of the license, date of receipt of the 1st license application

 

Each license includes the following date below the date of issue:

 

  • 1st license application: date of the 1st receipt of the license
        For example:
        Essen, March 20, 2008
        1st application: March 14, 2008

 

Each license includes a version-number besides the date of issue, if the license is re-issued again.

 

  • For example:

        1st application: March 14, 2008
 

2.5 Cancelling of an already issued license, if the membership fee and/or the fee at the acceptance as new member
are not paid in time

 

All licenses already issued will be removed and cancelled as well for the main club, which is responsible for its sub-clubs, as also for the sub-club in question,
if the annual membership fee has not been paid in time (this is also valid for the membership fee of a sub-club!).
This regulation applies also for the fee to be paid when accepted as a new member.
A message will be forwarded by the treasurer or the WCF-office to the licensing persons.

 

2.6 No licensing of shows organized by sub-clubs, if a disciplinary case is pending against the main club

 

When a disciplinary case is pending against a main club or the main club was suspended or expelled, there will not be licensed any shows for the main club as well as for its sub-clubs.
A message will be forwarded by the secretary general or the WCF-office to the licensing persons.

 

2.7 Afterwards cancelation of already licensed shows

 

Each afterwards cancelation of an already licensed show which is already entered in the show calendar can only be made by the licensing persons, if they have received the written agreement and advise of the Board (an email is sufficient).
The message (advise) will be sent by the secretary general or the WCF-office to the licensing persons.

 

2.8 No further licensing of shows of clubs, whose data is not completely provided

 

For each club, whose data is imcompletely provided, only 1 show will be licensed.
The club (main club) receives a severe warning and the request to complete its data.
If the club does not provide the complete data on request within a given time frame, no further shows will be licensed.

 

This regulation is also valid for main clubs, for which the data of its sub-clubs is not complete, because the main club is responsible for its sub-clubs.

 
3. C-Nummer must be provided on the license application

 

Commencing January 1, 2007 the application for show licenses has to be made according to the following procedure:

 

Alternative 1
You forward the fee for one certain show including all necessary information (see the form for the application for a license). You will receive a C-number
from the WCF-office or the treasurer. Then you forward the form "Application for license" (see menu "Infothek-Forms") per email or fax to the licensing
persons including the C-number.

 

Alternative 2
You forward more than one fee at once. You may receive a certificate number (=C-number) for each single fee. You may apply for a license with this
C-number at the licensing persons within the given time frame, using the form "Application for license" (see menu "Infothek-Forms").

 

In general you know already at the beginning of a year, how many shows you will organize. Thus you may pay the fees for your shows planned
already together with your membership fee and you will save transfer fees on your bank account.

 
4. License fee

 

Commencing with January 1, 2009 for each 1-day show of two consecutive 1-day shows the full licnese fee has to be paid.
That means, you will receive 2 C-numbers, but only one license-number. Both C-numbers will be indicated on the show license.

 

This regulation is also valid for 3 1-day shows, then you will receive 3 C-numbers and 1 license-number.

 
5. Archiving of the documents concerning the license

 

All documents concerning the show license will be archived until 1 year after the show date, if the national law does not require a different period.
That means that all applications for licenses (also all changes), all documents (also the emails) and all licneses (also all changes) will be kept from the
1st date of the 1st application for a license until 1 year after the show date of the show concerned either electronically or as printed documents.

 
6. Penalty fee

 

The penalty fee for non-compliance with the rules is at least 200.- Euros.

 

 
7. Counter-signing of judge's reports

 

If a cat is judged twice by the same judge in 2 different shows, a counter-signing by another judge officiating on the show is possible, when the judge is licensed for the hair category in question.
Both judge's reports will be considered as if they were given by two different judges.

 

When not otherwise stated, these regulations are immediately in effect.
