The Labrador Breed Council represents the thirteen Labrador Retriever Breed Clubs in the United Kingdom. It is the official channel of communication with the Kennel Club. Meetings are held once per year and each club nominates & sends two representatives to the annual meeting. Each club has one vote at the meeting. The Chairman and Hon Secretary are elected each year by the club representatives.

The Labrador Breed Council is responsible for establishing a consensus from among the member Breed Clubs on Judging criteria, training, qualifications and lists, Breed Standard, Health issues, KC Registration

A separate sub committee of 6 elected representatives form a Health committee which meets biannually.
Each member represents two Breed Clubs.

Sub Committees are set up as necessary to discuss detail or formulate policy which is then voted upon by all clubs at the annual meeting.
