Looking at the FCI standard the only thing I see them saying about the color of the undercoat is;
Quote: The undercoat shows a light greyish tone.
Here's the link I'm using for the standard ---->
FCI-Standard N° 166 / 07. 08. 1996 / GB

It doesn’t say anything about different colors but I can tell you that my Black & Tan AmBred’s undercoat is a cream color where he has an undercoat. My Bi-color’s undercoat is more of a dark gray (I wouldn't call it black or light gray).

I think the one you're looking at might be an older version????

I could be wrong but under the faults there is nothing about the undercoat color so I don't think that's a big issue. I think the major thing is that there is an undercoat, the fault seems to be when there is no undercoat.

Oh, no I think it is a "Breed Standard" issue. I think the problem is just that the standard has changed a bit over time - maybe they found the way it was worded earlier was wrong or misleading. (Who knows?) Some standards don't say anything about the color of the undercoat but I just figured you were looking at the FCI standard.
