The delegates for the handlers and the board of the FSB have decided that:
the following rules are applicable as from 1 Jan 2017
- Each participant may choose the class in which he will participate at registration time. - A participant may run 6 competition days outside competition(OC) to check the capacity of his dog to perform in the next class. He may continue to play for points in the earlier class. A participant that participate to a trial for points may not retrograde to the earlier class, except outside competition (OC).
- The combination handler/dog must have reached three times a score of 70 points before being able to promote to the next class.
- The Outside competition participant will not take a rank place in the competition even if his results are the best of the day. The participant is required to control his status of OC before the trial (on the starting list) and announce at least the OC status before the execution of the run.
