General Stud Book of Southern Africa wins recognition

National Horseracing AuthorityFollowing the legislation passed on 1 November 2018 [Regulation (EU) 2016/1012 [Article 34], the General Stud Book of Southern Africa applied for recognition in January 2019 and the application was approved on 26 February 2019.

On 3 April 2019 South Africa was included on the list of breeding bodies published under Articles 34(1) and 64(4) of Regulation (EU) 2016/1012 [Article 34].

The implication of this is that horses from non-listed countries are not allowed to enter any EU-country or to be registered in that country.

For example, a Thoroughbred exported from South Africa to France would not be allowed to enter France as a Thoroughbred from South Africa if South Africa were not listed.

Thhis horse would also not be permitted to be registered in the French Thoroughbred Stud Book.
