1. "Recognized Studbook" means a warmblood studbook incorporated outside of Ireland that is approved by the appropriate studbook recognizing authority in the country of origin and has been determined by the Warmblood Studbook of Ireland to have appropriate genetics, selection policies, and on-going stallion and mare evaluation policies.

4. The following new criterion has been implemented for stallion approval: In the case of an Irish Sport Horse stallion, the stallion's sire and dam-sire must be approved by a Recognized Studbook and, if living, the dam of the stallion also must be available for evaluation by the Stallion Inspection Committee.

5. The following criterion has been revised for stallion approval: The stallion must have at least five (formerly four) generations of pedigree recorded with no ancestors unknown or not recorded.
