The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) is the world organization of cynology. It currently has 80 member and partner countries (only one association per country), which in turn issue their own pedigrees and train the judges. The FCI guarantees within its organization the mutual recognition of the pedigrees of the countries, the champion titles and the judges.
The Österreichische Kynologenverband (ÖKV), founded in 1909, is the umbrella organisation of about 100 Austrian dog clubs, which are involved in breeding, keeping, training, exhibition, education and testing of dogs. The Austrian Cynological Association is the only Austrian dog umbrella organisation to be a member of the international umbrella organisation of the canine world, the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale).
