This is a milestone in the development of the FIDE Ratings. When the ratings book was being distributed in print, we supplmented it with ratings on diskettes in the 80`s. Then we mailed out all individual calculations on CD`s in the 90`s. With the advent of the web, dissemination became worldwide. Last year we innovated with publication of game by game ratings following the decision of the Qualification Commission.

Our policy has been transparency in all data and calculations. With openness we earn trust and respect for the FIDE Ratings system. We have extended this openness to the Title Application system by publishing on the web all Title Certificates with links to the Rating Reports. As Qualification Commission Chairman Mikko Markkula opined, transparency helps prevent fraud.

The FIDE Ratings are the work of all FIDE members. Further improvements are in the works and we thank all who help produce the FIDE Ratings, all the FIDE Commission chairmen and members who help draft the regulations and to all National Federations, Rating Officers and Arbiters.
