Rules Commission Project

As 2016 is a year where the Laws of Chess may be amended, the Rules Commission is seeking the assistance of national federations to understand potential differences between local/national rules governing non-FIDE rated chess games and the FIDE Laws of Chess.

As such the Rules Commission is requesting the following responses from national chess federations:

  • 1. Does your national chess federation utilize separate or modified rules governing chess games not rated by FIDE? (Yes or No)
  • 2. If so please provide the Rules Commission with an electronic copy of these rules along with a document outlining the differences.

We request to have this documents no later than 28.February.2016

Please provided the requested documents to the Chairman of the FIDE Rules Commission, Ashot Vardapetyan ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it )

We thank all national federations for your cooperation with this project.

 
Amendment Period for the FIDE Laws of Chess

At the 87th Congress to be held in Baku in 2016, the FIDE Rules Commission along with arbiters, organizers, players, trainers and national federations globally will have the opportunity to amend the FIDE Laws of Chess.
