Communities, Sport and Recreation (CSR) has developed a regulatory model to protect the interests and safety of those involved in professional and amateur boxing and combat sport contests through providing best practice standards, developed in consultation with the industry and Tasmania Police.

The Standards for Boxing and Combat Sport Contests (Standards) require all boxing and combat sport contests in Tasmania to be conducted in accordance with the Standards and Section 49B (1) of the Police Offences Act 1935.

All promoters wanting to apply for recognition of a governing or sanctioning body for a Boxing or Combat Sport contest for the first time should contact CSR on 1300 252 476 to discuss their proposed contest and the implementation of safety measures that meet the Standards six weeks prior to any contest. Promoters who have previously been approved should contact four weeks prior to any contest.
