1. Chairman's remarks and welcome

The Chairman Ashot Vardapetyan welcomed all present and summed up last two years of the activity of the RC.

However, the Handbook structure must be revised in the near future. During the CBC meeting a four person committee (T. Delega, L. Freyd, R. Haring and M. Kaloumenos) was formed to deal with this matter, if will be approved by GA.

2. Handbook structure, revision and responsibility - discussion

The Secretary Tomasz Delega explained reason, why RC has started this job. In the FIDE Handbook we have regulated this same matter in different way on the different sections. This is of course not good and complicates tasks for the organizers and arbiters. He presented a first draft of the new structure of the Handbook, with a responsibility of the commissions. For details see Handbook_structure_and_responsibility_-_v2.pdf.

3. Amendments to General Regulations for Competitions (old name: Competition Rules)

4. Refreshment courses about the Laws of Chess and General Regulations for Competitions

The Chairman reminded, that amendments of the Competition Rules is scheduled for the 2018 FIDE Congress in Batumi, Georgia. RC agreed that name of this document shall be changed to avoid misunderstanding with a part of the Laws of Chess, which is also called Competition Rules (see the content of the FIDE Laws of Chess). But the problem is that one of the FIDE EVE document published in FIDE Handbook D.04.01 have this same name (General Regulation for FIDE Competitions). This must be discussed with EVE.

The draft of the General Regulations for Competitions was published on the RC website and letters were send to TGR and ACP. Unfortunately, TRG and ACP didn’t answered. We would like to say thank you for others person who has sent their proposals, especially to Alex Holowczak (ENG) who pointed out, that the goal and structure of the General Regulations for Competitions must be discussed and precisely described. The Councillors agreed that the FIDE Handbook should be revised in the near future, and responsibility for concrete regulations should be given to the concrete FIDE commissions.

The Secretary presented the draft of the General Regulation for Competition and RC members discussed step by step each proposal. For details see the FIDE_General_Regulations_for_Competitions_-_draft_4.pdf. In some point further consultations are needed with other FIDE commission (EVE, RC, CCJ) to avoid repetitions of the rules and regulations.
