The completed form must be forwarded to the relevant Member Body office for onforwarding to ANKC Ltd.

PLEASE NOTE:  We advise all applicants to be patient once ANKC has sent these forms to the FCI as it will probably take some time to process them.  Do not download the FCI Form from their website as the form has to have the ANKC Logo on it.
