The East Anglian Collie Association produces 3 Judges’ lists, for both Rough & Smooth Collies. Separate A, B & C lists are compiled for both breed specialists and non-breed specialists and these lists are monitored by the Club’s Judges’ sub-committee on an annual basis.

The EACA’s ‘C’ Lists are for aspiring judges who have shown an interest in judging Collies, whether Rough and/or Smooth, but have yet to acquire the experience and/or qualifications necessary for elevation to our ‘B’ Lists. Aspiring judges may have already acquired limited judging experience at Open and Limited Shows.

Those listed on our ‘C’ lists are able to officiate at Open or Limited Shows where 3 classes of the breed are scheduled (4 classes if a Puppy class is scheduled). The EACA will also support these judges when asked to judge the Special Award Classes at Breed Club Shows.

KC to extend the period between CC judging appointments:

As from 1st January 2018, the

KC will extend the minimum period of time between

CC judging appointments
(to the same sex and breed),

Officers and Committee

In grateful appreciation for their many years of dedicated service to the Collie and the East Anglian Collie Association, we maintain a list of those Breed Specialist judges, both Rough and Smooth, who have either retired or are sadly no longer with us.

East Anglian Collie Association's List of Honorary Collie Specialist Judges

East Anglian Collie Association’s list of Honorary Judges can be downloaded here.

A2 list - for judges who have fulfilled the requirements of the A3 list, have been satisfactorily assessed three times and approved by the KC for inclusion on the A2 list. Once he/she has awarded their first CCs they will automatically be promoted to the A1 list.

A1 list - includes those who have been approved by the KC to award CCs and who have completed their first appointment.

The EACA’s ‘A’ Lists include those persons who have, or who are close to gaining, sufficient experience to Judge Collies at Championship level under Kennel Club rules.

‘A’ lists are divided into three sections - A1, A2 & A3, and all candidates wishing to apply for inclusion on these lists must meet all requirements before applying:

A3 list - B list judges, having fulfilled requirements for the A list, with the exception of the two ring-side assessments, will be promoted to the A3 list.

The EACA’s ‘B’ Lists contains details of those judges who have gained enough experience, and shown sufficient interest in the Collie, (Rough and/or Smooth) to judge at Breed Club level or at Championship Shows where Kennel Club Challenge Certificates are not on offer for the breed.

Whilst on a Breed Club’s ‘B’ list, the judge is advised to contact the Breed Council to arrange for their Breed Club judging assessment (examination on Standard and ‘hands-on’) under the KC’s ‘Code of Practice’ format.

N.B. The KC recommends that, during the transition to the JCF (between Jan 2019 and Jan 2022) those judges currently on our Rough Collie A3 lists are advised to complete their final two ring-side assessments as soon as possible.  

These can take place at Breed Club Open Shows and/or ‘all breed’ Open Shows, providing 12 dogs are presented for judging. 2 assessments can also be done at the same show with just 12 dogs present!
