RULES AND TOURNAMENT REGULATIONS COMMISSION
The material refers, where appropriate, to the forthcoming Laws that take effect from 1 July 2014.



Q. Why are the Laws and other regulations changed 1 July?

A. 1. There are a number of leagues, particularly in Europe that continue for six months. It would be difficult if the Laws changed in the middle of the season. 2. The

FIDE Congress usually takes place later in the year and this gives time to advertise changes.


Q. What is FIDE?

A. Fédération internationale des échec. The world chess federation governing body was formed in Paris in 1924.

A. Many of thecommissions, for example:Arbiters, Chessin Schools, World Championship & Olympiad, Development, Events, Qualification, Technical, Swiss Pairings, Trainers’, Chess Compositions, Chess for the Disabled Committee.
