The Sports Ministry in consultation with all stakeholders including the IOC, National Olympic Committee of Sri Lanka (NOCSL) and the Attorney Generals Department amended the sports regulations removing some of the intrusive and restrictive clauses. But it has insisted that all federations including NOCSL should audit their accounts through the Government auditors. The auditing of accounts by Government auditors is a mandatory requirement under the Sports Law for all national sports associations and all committees including the NOCSL. Sri Lanka has agreed to revise the Sports Law and the regulations enacted therein in line with the Olympic Charter and the Statues of International Federations, following several rounds of discussions with the IOC. The regulations underwent several rounds of amendments in keeping with the Olympic Charter but the Government is yet to complete the revision of the Sports Law.
