The Government does not determine whether sports should introduce a national governing body, this is for the sport to decide.

The process for National Governing Body recognition is a joint policy operated by the four home country sports councils (Sport England, Sport Northern Ireland, Sport Scotland, Sport Wales) and UK Sport. The aim of the recognition process is to identify a single lead NGB structure which governs a sport at UK, GB or home country level.
