In the long run, a pro­gram of mea­sures will be de­vel­oped that pro­vides for the grad­ual tran­si­tion of all gen­eral schools in the na­tion to the teach­ing of chess, the train­ing of highly qual­i­fied train­ers, the con­sol­i­da­tion of the fi­nan­cial and tech­ni­cal ca­pac­i­ties of chess clubs and chess classes of gen­eral schools.

In ad­di­tion, as it fol­lows from a pres­i­den­tial res­o­lu­tion, the Repub­li­can Spe­cial­ized Chil­dren’s and Youth Sports School of Chess will be trans­ferred to the Chess Fed­er­a­tion of Uzbek­istan. From now on, it will carry out its ac­tiv­i­ties on the con­di­tions of self- fund­ing.

In a month’s time, all chess clubs will un­dergo doc­u­men­ta­tion process. And from 1 Septem­ber 2018, all chess clubs and other sports in­sti­tu­tions that teach chess and train play­ers in this field, ir­re­spec­tive of the form of own­er­ship, will have to pass manda­tory ac­cred­i­ta­tion in the Chess Fed­er­a­tion of Uzbek­istan in co­or­di­na­tion with the Min­istry of Phys­i­cal Cul­ture and Sports.

A mech­a­nism is be­ing in­tro­duced whereby chess clubs pro­vide quar­terly re­ports on their ac­tiv­i­ties to the Chess Fed­er­a­tion of Uzbek­istan.
