As a service to show judges we have collected documents useful for the assignment in Sweden. Further questions can be answered by the organizing club.
Accommodation and meals according to SKK standards
Hotel rooms with shower, toilet, TV and telephone. If there are no hotels near the show ground, or the standard of the hotels are low, you shall be contacted in advance and informed about the standard and asked if you are willing to accept the accommodation.
If you are offered to stay with someone in the club, you should be able to have some privacy – e.g. not be offered a bed in a living room. You do not have to accept to stay at someone's house if don't want to.
The show organizer should inform you in advance of what applies for the dinner the evening before the show. If you arrive late in the evening you will be offered a lighter meal. The show organizer is obliged to cater for food and refreshments during the show days, e.g. at the show ground.
It is usual for a joint dinner at a two/three day show. The organizer should in due time inform about the dress code.
Remuneration and travel compensation
There is a choice whether to use the Svenska Kennelklubben or the FCI regulations. The alternative chosen shall be marked in the form for Confirmation/Agreement between judge and organizing club. The alternatives cannot be mixed, either both judging fee and kilometrage is according to FCI regulations or Svenska Kennelklubben regulations.
In both alternatives the actual costs for travel shall be reimbursed by the organizing club, such as parking/train/bus/taxi/flight (reasonably priced economy class ticket).
Judging fee and kilometrage when travelling by car differs between the FCI and the Svenska Kennelklubben regulations as stated below;

Judging fee: 950 SEK / judging day
Kilometrage: 1,85 SEK / km
Judging fee: 50 € / judging day and 35 € / travel day
Kilometrage: 0,35 € / km
