Online chess regulations

 After six months of work* FIDE have published the official Online Chess Regulations. They cover online supervised events (where players play from home, and are supervised online), and hybrid chess events (where players play online but are supervised in person). For now the intention is to provide a set of standard rules that tournament organisers can use for their online events, but there is a push to allow certain FIDE events to be run as 'hybrid' events.

The FIDE announcement and rules can be found here

* I was part of the team that produced these regulations.
