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.
