I was actually surprised it wasn't already a rule. Mixed feelings. Not sure why they are all of a sudden deciding it needs to be done. Hard to know why the SV/WUSV makes decisions. Most people (extremely high percentage) competing at this level are not going to compete with a dog with bad hips/elbows that cause soundness issues. Why risk having the dog break down after putting in all of that training? There are enough other issues to worry about like backs, injuries, etc.
The Kör requirement probably won't fly since not all WUSV countries have a survey system. They may be able to require it for their own (SV) people, but I think they will have a fight to implement it for all countries.
