    Thanks Kevin, but I think Lee is for an IA title.

    You are of course correct. Edited.

    I was recently in the FIDE Office and I have collected the relevant certificates for the Andrew and Lee. When I return to Australia, I will send them directly to them along with their pins.

    The new FIDE Regulations for Arbiters come into effect on 1st July 2021.

    https://arbiters.fide.com/news/6041

    The main change to arbiter title requirements seems to be that hybrid events will now be valid for FA/IA norms if they meet the corresponding criteria for over-the-board tournament FA/IA norms.

    Also, (edit: from 1st July 2022) the IA title will require 5 norms -- one of which must be a positive readiness evaluation from a IA Certification Seminar.

    Also note at https://handbook.fide.com/chapter/B0603

    -----

    2. Active and Inactive IAs and FAs

    2.1 An IA or FA is considered to be “Inactive” if in a period of four (4) years they have not successfully attended a Refresher Course organized by the FIDE Arbiters’ Commission. When an arbiter reaches his “end of activity” date, his status is changed to “Inactive”.

    2.1.1 An inactive arbiter may not officiate as the Chief Arbiter in any FIDE rated tournaments, except in those where no possibilities of norms for players exist.

    2.1.2 An inactive arbiter may not be selected to officiate in any official FIDE or Continental events.

    2.2 The “end of activity” date is calculated and updated by adding four (4) years to:

    2.2.1 The FA Title award date, in the case of a newly titled FA.

    2.2.2 The last day of the last Refresher Course or IA Certification Seminar, successfully attended by the arbiter.

    2.3 Gaining a new title or category does not impact the end of activity date.

    2.4 Inactive IAs and FAs are flagged as such on their Profile on the FIDE Rating Server.

    2.5 An Inactive IA or FA can be considered active again, only after successfully attending a Refresher Seminar and after validation by the Arbiters’ Commission.

    2.6 Transition 2021 – for a smooth implementation of the new regulations. The initial end of activity date will be calculated as follow, as the new regulations come into force:

    2.6.1 Active arbiters with a last tournament in 2016 or before: 31/12/2020, status set to inactive.

    2.6.2 Active arbiters with a last tournament in 2017: IA 31/12/2021 – FA 31/12/2022

    2.6.3 Active arbiters with a last tournament in 2018: 31/12/2022

    2.6.4 Active arbiters with a last tournament in 2019: 31/12/2023

    2.6.5 Active arbiters with a last tournament in 2020: 31/12/2024

    Also of note:

    FAs can only be Category D.

    Category D tournaments are tournaments at which IA norms are possible i.e. norm tournaments, low-level FIDE events (e.g. Zonals) and national championships.

    Registration is only required for the chief arbiter of norm tournaments, so events like club tournaments and smaller opens may not require active/registered chief arbiters if the rating regulations are updated to follow suit (which seems likely since registration and activity are replacing arbiter licensing).

    Deadline for applications for arbiter titles for the upcoming FIDE Council meeting is 2 July, which curiously appears to mean that applications can be sent on 1 and 2 July only under the new rules, but otherwise will have to wait for the next meeting (there's one about every three months).

    If anyone's considering this please bear in mind that you need to get the application to me in time for me to check it and process it, which may take a day or so, so send it on the 1st or before and not the 2nd, ta.

    Also the new regulations have removed the requirement for arbiter title applications to include IT3 forms.
