2.0. Laws to be followed


Play must take place according to the FIDE Laws of Chess.


Smoking is banned in FIDE-rated events. Smoking is not permitted in the playing hall for the duration of the tournament. This applies to everyone present - players, officials, media representatives and spectators.

A separate area outside the playing area must be provided where smoking is permitted. This should be easily accessible from the playing hall. If local ordinances totally prohibit smoking on the premises, the players and officials must be provided with easy access outdoors.
