Here are important rules about RTWC taken from RIF Sport Commission document:

4.5 Team World Championships (TWC)
Purpose: To determine the World Champion team every second year.
When: To be played in April/May every even year.
How: According to tournament system in appendix 1. One team has four players plus maximum two reserve players.
Tie break rules:
1. Number of game points
2. Team match points
3. Buchholz coefficient (calculated on game points)
4. Berger coefficient (calculated on game points)
5. Personal match between teams
6. Result of 1st table
7. Result of 2nd table
8. Result of 3rd table
9. If all criteria are the same, the teams will share the places, except when precise determination of places is required - in that case an extra game with 20 minutes per player is played between the 1st table players (in case of 2 involved teams). If the extra matches are to be played between 3 or more involved teams with same tie break criteria, the referee will decide the time limit of the games between the 1st table players. If the tie was not broken, there will be additional matches played between the 1st table players until the tie is broken. The referee decides the time limit for those matches.

Who: Below, the teams that are allowed to take part:
• All TWC winners generates one country team place.
• One team from each country, who havent been Team World Champions.
• The organizing country has the right to participate with one extra team regardless of how many teams they have from above.

Time control: Thinking time for each player is 2 hours   plus 30 seconds per move (Fischer).

Additional rule 1: Players may talk to their team captain about strategy regarding offering or accepting draw in their ongoing game. However, this conversation must be done in English. In cases when a player cannot use English, the referee can make an exception.

Additional rule 2: When two players from the same team are copying moves from opponents resulting in the situation that the opponents are really playing versus each other is regarded as “copying of moves”. When this kind of copying of moves happens a team captain can claim that one of the games will be continued in a separate playing hall without access for other players than the moved players

Appendix 1 – Tournament systems depending on number of participants

6. 9 - 10 teams – RR [9 rounds]- So, as we have 9 teams in both Championships, 9 rounds in Round Robin system will be played
