Title applications in Covid Period

As we shared about it during our meeting at the 91st FIDE Congress online and some colleagues from around the world were asking recently: the Arbiters’ Commission confirms that there will be an extension of 1 year when reviewing arbiter norms in title applications. The scope of the extension is norms from tournaments and from seminars, however the deadline between the latest event and the actual application shall be respected (no later than the 2nd Congress after the last event).

The title application team is happy to support federations with applications and we encourage federation officials in charge of arbiter titles’ applications to watch again our webinar on the topic by clicking this link.
