Ladies and Gentlemen:

Recently, we received a number of requests with regard to the future requirements for the participation in the WUSV World Championship and the Universal Championship. Clarification was in particular required in terms of the HD/ ED diagnostics. Please be informed that from 2020 on only HD/ ED diagnostics are accepted if approved by the SV respectively the WUSV. For evidence the dogs pedigrees are to be presented. Please note that from then on the diagnostics as issued by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of Animals) shall no longer be considered. For details in terms of diagnostics approved of by the SV please see the table you will find by following the link below.

In case of doubt, please contact the WUSV Secretariat General. Thank you for your attention.
