Following a BSGC meeting on 31st July 2022, the GCCF have been instructed to remove from the online registration system (Phoenix) the option to register a British Shorthair variant (BSHv). The BSHv has progressed to a new breed, the British Longhair, and achieved championship status in November 2021 being approved at council. The BSHGC have agreed that the variant no longer exists. The registration policy for the British Shorthair is currently being revised and will no longer reference BSHv.
PLEASE NOTE: The online registration system (Phoenix) has been updated to reflect this change.
