With the increment I think it is fair for all moves to be recorded during play. I appreciate that all players may not agree.
I think such a rule will cost you entries. I wouldn't play with it in force. I also think you'll need extra arbiters to enforce the rule because players are even more likely than normal to break the second sentence of Rule 8.1.3 if their moves are obvious.

If the increment is only 10 seconds, you might want to reconsider the requirement that players must record all the moves.

It doesn't really matter what you think is fair or not; the issue is what the rules are and complying with them. It's not my responsibility, but I'm quite sure that the ECF's rules for tournaments to be graded don't give organisers the flexibility to use the rule you want to use in their tournaments.
Thanks for the feedback. I care a lot to do things by the rules and have realized that the 5 min rule regarding notation does apply with 10 sec inc. I will update this on the online entry form immediately.

"I will update this on the online entry form immediately."

It is very nice to see someone asking questions and then taking the answers seriously!
