SCCM

The Société centrale canine marocaine (SCCM) was created in 1934 as the first organization of cynophilia in Morocco, in accordance with Dahir n°1-58-376 of November 15, 1958, relating to the right of association. 

Placed under the supervision of the Ministry of agriculture and agrarian reform, the SCCM works to encourage breeding and the betterment of canine breeds in Morocco, as per the regulations and standards of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).

The SCCM brings together all the breed and working clubs across the country, issues and reviews all pedigrees, and holds the Moroccan Book of Origins (LMO). The LMO is the official registry for canine breeds, created by Decree n°2-58-328 of June 23, 1956, and contains all registrations of purebred dogs, including those made on the old books of the formerly named Société canine du Maroc.

 

Mission

At the core of its mission, the SCCM works with Moroccan veterinarians and the country’s many cynophiles to oversee the betterment of canine breeds and the creation of new clubs across different cities.

Indeed, breed and working clubs remain the true workshops of the development of Moroccan cynophilia. They are a priority and as such, they benefit from subsidies granted by the Ministry of agriculture and agrarian reform. 

Among the many clubs under SCCM supervision, the Sloughi Club of Casablanca and the Atlas shepherd Club of Rabat are vested with the task to promote these two Moroccan breeds as an inherent part of our national heritage.

- The FCI (International Cynological Federation)

The Fédération Cynologique Internationale is the World Canine Organization. It is made up of 99 member-countries and partners under contract (one member per country) who each issue their pedigrees and train their judges, of which the SCCM is a part. The FCI guarantees the mutual recognition of judges and pedigrees within its member countries. The FCI recognizes 354 breeds, each of which is the ‘property’ of a specific country. The countries ‘owners’ of these breeds establish the standard (detailed description of the ideal type of the breed) – in collaboration with the Standards and Scientific Commissions of the FCI – whose translation, updating and publication are ensured by the CFI. These standards constitute the reference on which judges base themselves when evaluating dogs at shows held in FCI member countries, as well as breeders in their attempt to produce superior quality dogs. Each member or contract partner organizes international beauty exhibitions (CACIB), international working (utility, tracking, nordic style, mondioring ) and hunting (CACIT) competitions, international agility (CACIAG) competitions , ‘ Obedience (CACIOB) and Dog Dancing (CACID), as well as international racing/ coursing (CACIL) and international herding dog trials (CACITR).The results of these competitions/tests are sent to the FCI Head Office which ensures their encoding and approval. When a dog has achieved a number of awards, it may be granted the title of International Champion of Beauty, Show, Working, Beauty and Work, Agility , Obedience , Dog Dancing, Race, Beauty and Performance or Herd . These titles are approved by the FCI. In addition, each breeder can request, via his national canine organization, the protection of his affix (name given to a breeding) at the international level.
