The Kennel Club is responsible for the approval of Championship Show Judges, of which there are in excess of 10,000 approved in the UK.

The Judges Sub-Committee (JSC) processes some 300 appointments for judges every six weeks to award Challenge Certificates (CCs) at championship Shows.  The Kennel Club holds a database of judges who have been previously approved for the breed(s) listed. Each and every appointment for a judge to award Challenge Certificates is subject to Kennel Club approval therefore, each judging appointment is for one occasion only.
