We are pleased to announce that as of Monday morning next week, we will be using a new robust service to take online credit card payments for membership renewal through the ANKC portal which can be accessed via our website
The current online system will be switched off from midnight this Thursday 24th August, to enable us to prepare for cutting over to the new payment system for membership renewals. The new system is planned to go live on Monday morning, 28th August, between 9 and 10am.
More information will be provided in At A Glance this week.
The office will be open at usual hours during this time for all other member services.

In the coming months we will be progressively rolling out online forms and payments for selected registrations and applications. The first goes live on Monday 21st August – the application for the Prefix Accreditation open book exam. Members will find the new online process to be very simple, and the credit card payment system is a state-of-the-art payment gateway supplied by Bendigo Bank using technology from Mastercard Payment Gateway Services. The system is safe, secure and quick. Applications submitted online will enable our team to process more quickly and to shorten turn-around times.
The introduction of online submission and payments necessitates a change in some back-office processes, and we will be using this first “live” form to test and refine new procedures. Once we have established the new back-office changes are robust, we will introduce further online forms. Each form requires a degree of tailoring, depending on what requirements and regulations need to be met.
It should be noted that the existing ANKC database is not in any way affected or connected to this technological improvement as yet, but we are currently working on some integration of true online credit card payments for ANKC-supplied technology in the next couple of weeks. The office staff appreciate your patience as we work on continually improving the processing of applications and registrations.

The National Rottweiler Council (Australia) - NRC(A) - would like to advise the International Federation of Rottweiler Friends (IFR) of the following:-
As from the 1st July, 2017 it will be mandatory that all Rottweilers prior to being used for breeding in Australia be tested for JLPP (Juvenile Laryngeal Paralysis Polyneuropathy) and that all NRC(A) State Member Clubs and their members will now be following this ruling.
The NRC(A) Executive and Member clubs would hope that the ANKC would also implement this into the ANKC scheme so that all Rottweiler Breeders in Australia will be under the same rule.
