These handlers has qualified as members of the national team 2018 for the EO and also world cup; although they will compete in the EO 2018, they will not be able to take part of world cup due to the fact that they did not know the FCI regulations that exist since 2007 regarding registrations of dogs for world cup.

France: jéréremy chomienne & page qualified for world cup will not be able to take part of it (facebook). The FCI regulations require that dogs must be registered at the studbook/appendix for a minimum of 6 months. Jérémy was not aware of this rule (most french handlers runs with dogs born in france). To register at the studbook at the SCC, the breed border collie must pass an instinct test that page did not do yet. Page had been qualified to run the qualis when she was still grade 1 (due to her potential), jérémy competed them with page (slovenia) and lass (france) and, with great results, classified with Page. The same happens to alice laforge with tesla (border collie from italy, daughter of fetch granting pleasure). At the regulations from 2007 the requirement for a dog was to be registered minimum 12 months before the world cup (page 14); on the regulations from 2012 they have changed to 6 months (page 15)

A&C: the representatives of runners that went to A& C in argentia this year met during the event and decided that A&C 2019 would be in brazil and 2020 in colombia. This decision has to be approved by the meeting of the section of americas and the caribbean FCI. Brazil talked with their delegate before this meeting but the delegate got ill before the event and the person that took his place did not know anything so nothing was said at the meeting; the delegates of other countries with agility did not mention anything about this proposal of venues. That's why the meeting named mexico for 2019, costa rica for 2020, peru for 2021 and el salvador for 2022 (click). the fault seems to be in the communication of each national agility organization with the representative from their kennel to the assembly of the section of the Americas and the Caribbean for FCI so that the representatives knew what to vote. Brazil tried to change this but it has not been possible and suggested to the local kennel organizing an american agility open in the dates selected for A&C (información no oficial) and the kennel approved it. the A&C 2019 will be in acapulco (méxico) on june 20- 23 (webpage, unofficial information). Comments from the agilitists don't show clearly which event they prefer to attend even if there is a slight preference for the FCI official competition even if they consider it is not the best option for the organization.

A&C: the FCI commission for the americas and caribbean section approved at the annual assembly on may 31 in brazil that the A&C 2020 will be together with the conformation competition in costa rica (facebook). Although many times the A&C conformation/ show coincided in time and place with the agility one, in recent years they were carried out in different dates and countries. On april 2018 (in occasion of argentina's A&C), the agility people met and voted that brazil would organize the event in 2019 and colombia in 2020; this was subject to ratification by the FCI comission for the americas and caribbean section as it happens when the FCI agility commission proposes the dates of the world cup and european open but it is the general committee of the FCI who ratifies (or not) those dates. Although the Americas & Caribbean is not an FCI tournament (as are world cup, EO, EO junior, and CACIAg competitions), it is run under FCI rules and its dates are validated in the FCI commission assembly for the americas and caribbean section.
