Call of Interest for Arbiters in World Events 2022-2023


The FIDE Arbiters’ Commission is proud to release a new process for selecting Arbiters for World Events.

Following the approval of the new B06.4 Handbook Chapter on the Selection of Arbiters in World Events by the FIDE Council, we are opening a call of interest to form panels of arbiters who may be selected for the World Championships.

Who is eligible?

All FIDE Arbiters and International Arbiters with a valid FIDE license.

As we anticipate a large number of responses, applications from Arbiters who are not eligible may simply be disregarded without formal acknowledgement.

How to apply?

The process will consist of two steps:

1. Send an email from your address to and with your name, FIDE ID and federation or a link to your FIDE profile, with the subject Call of Interest 2022-2023.

2. A survey will be issued in Chamilo* to collect interest in a structured way. You will receive instructions on how to connect and answer. You may have to give your GDPR consent before completing the survey if you are new to the system.

* Chamilo is the ARB Training Portal, which we are using to support the process. We will take advantage of the call of interest to include colleagues who haven’t followed training sessions yet under this new system.

When to apply?

The call of interest is open from November 10, 2021, to December 10, 2021, 23:59 CET. Any email received after the deadline will be disregarded.

Further details will follow soon, with explanations on the new process: panels, selection process with GSC, EVE and organisers etc. In the meantime, you may wish to watch the webinar we hosted in 2020 about the same topic, sharing the overall vision of the commission.
