**************    UPDATES 2009     ***********

” PLEASE NOTE ”  2009

In the 2009 Tracking Test Rules and Regulations – Premium List 4.1 (p) it states that  ” A statement to include the wording of Section 13.7 is to appear in the Premium List.

In the Tracking Rules & Regulations 2007 and  prior years this was the correct
Section Number. Due to a revised edition error in transcribing,  the correct Section as it applies to the Premium List should be Section 14.7 and not Section 13.7
