please tell me is the ICCF or FICGS rating recognised by FIDE?

Andrew Stephenson    (2008-04-15 10:33:37)

The ICCF is the only body sanctioned for correspondence chess by FIDE. All ICCF titles, championships and ratings are recognised by FIDE - this is what Wikipedia says and I believe it is correct.

otb v iccf ratings

To add a bit more to Andrew's answer.

While ICCF is fide recognised?, it does not mean an online player can turn up to an over the board tournament and use that ICCF rating or ICCF title in an otb tournament.

Only ratings attained over the board can be used for other otb tournaments.
