Standards Committee – Transparency
At the 2013 Annual General Meeting of Chess Scotland, various references were made to transparency in the context of the Standards Committee. When a contentious case arises, a number of people may use various outlets to express their views based on the facts as they understand them. Nonetheless, both before and after their ruling has been given on a case, it is not open to the Committee to enter into any public debate. During the consideration of a case the Committee will review evidence provided by the parties to the complaint including any witness statements but after a ruling has been given, the Committee will not enter into any discussions beyond that point.
What we can do, however, is give more information on how the Committee operates. The rules governing the Committee are agreed by Chess Scotland and are published in the document, Operating Procedures. In order to give more background to any interested parties, the Committee has drawn up a set of Questions and Answers, based on comments made from various sources. We hope that these Q&As will help to improve general understanding of the Committee's role. Nothing in these Q&As cuts across or in any way impacts on the agreed Operating Procedures.
