Invitation to the Inaugural FIDE TEC Vendor User Group Meeting


Dear Esteemed Members of the FIDE Community,

We are pleased to announce the inaugural FIDE Technical Commission (TEC) Vendor User Group Meeting. Over the past year, we have observed an increasing interest from vendors seeking endorsement for their innovative and technologically advanced products. Recognizing the importance of this dialogue, the FIDE TEC is committed to fostering enhanced communication with our valued vendors.

To this end, we are actively working on streamlining and digitizing our processes, as well as refining our policies and procedures. Key areas of focus include the endorsement process, proposals for rule changes, tie-break mechanisms, and pairing systems. Your insights and contributions are vital to us in this endeavour. We are eager to engage in a meaningful discussion with you to better understand your needs and explore how we can collaboratively enhance our processes.
