The Fair Play Panel (FPP) will be made of 21 members and is chaired by Mr. Yuri Garrett of Italy, with Mr. Klaus Deventer and Mr. Alex Colovic acting as Deputies. Players are required to comply with FPP instructions failing to do so may result in the application of Art. 12.9 of the Laws of Chess.
There will be separated smoking areas for Captains and for Players in both Sections, in order to avoid contact between them. Smoking areas will be supervised by FPP members and/or volunteers.
In order for the above measures to be successful and fair play guaranteed during the Olympiad, mutual cooperation between Players, Captains, Arbiters and FPP is of the essence.
All games will be checked by Prof. Ken Regan’s software and the Fair Play Officer in charge and the Chief Arbiter will receive daily relevant reports. These reports may trigger unobtrusive reactions by the FPP as also more intrusive action, upon the discretion of the FPP.
The above provisions are subject to change for the best outcome of the event.
