Later that year, NASS was accepted by the International Shagya-Araber Gesellschaft (ISG) as the official registry for the USA and Canada. The ISG is the International body supporting the breeding and preservation of the Shagya-Arabian,

Shagya-Arabians were relatively unknown in America before the 1980s, although a few had been imported both before and after World War II. Prior to the founding of the NASS no registry for Shagya-Arabians existed in America, and they were sometimes mistakenly registered as either purebred or part-bred Arabians.
