If you are a member of the ECF and require a FIDE ID to take part in events, please contact the International Rating Officer, David Clayton. English players who have achieved Title Norms from events should check they have been registered with FIDE. Any anomalies should be reported the ECF International Rating Officer. When a player believes they have achieved the qualification for a title, they should contact the ECF International Rating Officer. English players reaching the FIDE rating requirement for CM/WCM/FM/WFM should notify the ECF International Rating Officer. The IRO’s email is iro@englishchess.org.uk
