Covid-19 Application processAs a result of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions introduced in January 2021, the application process has been amended. Aspects of the process will be conducted remotely in order to progress your application, and an appointed assessor will contact you regarding this.
Please note, it will not be possible to complete your application and grant certification until such time as a successful home visit can take place - this will be subject to Government advice and guidelines.
An initial administration fee of £25 is payable upon submission of your application, the ABS team will provide a payment link via email to take the remaining £60 joining fee* once your application has been reviewed.
Please note that you will need to receive a breeder assessment visit every three years to ensure that you comply with the scheme requirements. The annual membership fee covers the cost of each visit.
*payable on an annual basis
