The Association of the IOC Recognised International Sports Federations (ARISF) was created in 1983.

ARISF has several aims, namely:

  • To act as a spokesperson, and to defend and coordinate the common interests of its members whilst maintaining their authority, independence and autonomy.
  • To determine the consensus of the member federations on questions of common interest in relation to the Olympic Movement,
  • To ensure the largest possible participation in the Congresses, programmes and projects of the International Olympic Committee (IOC),
  • To decide on nominations of ARISF representatives on commissions of the IOC and/or other international sports organisations.
