I hereby request the English Chess Federation to register the above event for rating with FIDE. I undertake to
• ensure that all English players are Gold or Platinum members of the ECF
• check with each player which Federation they should be registered to
• obtain each player's date of birth
• supply the ECF with a completed FIDE rating file no later than 26th of the month in which the event is played (or 26th of the following month if the event ends after 26th)
• register my tournament on the FIDE calendar at www.fide.com/calendar/tournaments if norms are possible
I understand and accept that I will be liable for a £100 late rating penalty, levied by FIDE upon the ECF, if I miss the FIDE rating deadline
