Chess Scotland Rule Book
Welcome to this rules book. Chess Scotland publishes sets of rules txo govern the administration of its tournaments and to assist in the conduct of other organised chess events in Scotland.
These rules include the full text of the FIDE Laws of Chess (2014 Revision) and is planned to have a three year life of validity to correspond with the cycle of Laws revision.
Responsibility for development and updating of these rules (including comments to FIDE on the draft of the Laws - and many of our suggestions have been included in the revised version) rests with the Technical Director and the Arbiters’ Committee. Any questions or suggestions should be directed to them.
Throughout these rules (as with the Laws of Chess) the words ‘he’, ‘him’ and ‘his’ are used indiscriminately to include ‘she’ and ‘her’.
