Alert by FIDE


Dear friends!

Due  to  move  of  offices  and  upgrading  of computers and technical software  and  hardware  in  the past 20 years, it has been an onerous task  to  verify norms achieved from old tournaments based on the then prevailing  title regulations when the tournaments took place. Instead of  tracking  old  regulations  and old tournament results whenever an application  is received, the QC recommended that norms achieved prior to  1st  July  2005 be registered before 1st July 2013. Failing which, the  norm will be considered to have expired. In addition with readily available  information  from  the  recent  years, the QC hopes to move towards automation of title awards as soon as possible.

The PB approved the recommendation of the QC.
