0.0. Introduction

The basic data for measurement of chess performances must be broad and ample. Play will be rated by FIDE when it takes place in a FIDE registered competition and meets all the following requirements.


The following regulations shall be altered by the General Assembly upon recommendation of the Qualification Commission.


Any such changes will come into effect on 1st July of the year following the decision by the General Assembly. For tournaments, such changes will apply to those starting on or after that date.


In principle, all important events should be rated. All top level tournaments may be rated by FIDE even if no rating report is submitted by the federation of the territory in which the event is held. (GA `96)
