What is the formula for converting FIDE to ECF ratings?

If I remember correctly it was FIDE-800/6 for BCF. Is it still the same?

From the ECF grading website - bottom of the help page:

ECF x 8 + 650 = FIDE
(FIDE - 650) / 8 = ECF

ECF x 8 + 600 = National Elo
(National Elo - 600) / 8 = ECF

And that means they think the FIDE ratings are inflated by 50 elo points over National Elo grades. (Scottish, KNSB, USCF etc)

Thanks Ragwort.

Now that you mention it, most guys I know with a FIDE rating have it higher than their national one.
