If FIDE want 30 Euros on top of the ECF's Â£ 27 and combined with the registration rules, is this on balance likely to increase or reduce the number of events seeking international rating?REGULATIONS ON REGISTRATION & LICENSING OF PLAYERS
1. All National Chess Federations (NCF) shall be required to register their Players with
FIDE. The FIDE Regulations on Registration, Transfers and Eligibility shall apply.
2. The information should contain Playerâ€™s Name, Gender, Place & Year of Birth, Photo,
Passport Number; FIDE ID Number (if any). FIDE or the NCF shall issue the FIDE ID
Number if the Player does not have one at the time of registration.
3. FIDE/NCF shall issue the Player with a Player ID Card bearing the information from
Rule 2 above. All information shall be maintained in the List of FIDE Licensed Players.
4. Registration & License Fees
Registration Fee is a one-time payment â€“ 10 Euro
License Fee for 1-year â€“ 30 Euro; 4-years â€“ 100 Euro; Life â€“ 500 Euro
5. A Player who registers to compete in any FIDE rated competition shall be required to
provide his FIDE ID Number.
6. An Organizer receiving any registration must refer to the List of FIDE Licensed Players
before accepting the registration.
7. If an Organizer inadvertently accepted a Player without a valid License, the Organizer
shall be penalized 50 Euro for every infringement. Such Players shall not have a FIDE ID
Number and shall have no Federation Flag.
8. Games played by Players without a valid License shall not count for rating for
themselves. Games played against them by Licensed Players shall be counted.
9. A NCF may subsequently (during or after the competition) register the Player mentioned
in Rules 8 & 9 above provided a Late Payment Fee of 100 Euro is paid.
I don't know the status of the proposal, how much support it has, and whether FIDE are likely to adopt it.
