The Nova Scotia Boxing Authority (NSBA) was established in 1975 to regulate professional boxing. In 1981 the authority superseded local boxing commissions. The object and purpose of the authority are to supervise and regulate boxing, establish and enforce uniform rules for the conduct of boxing, provide for the licensing of all persons engaged in or connected with the presentation of boxing contests or exhibitions, provide for and enforce proper medical standards and periodic medical examinations for boxers and officials, and train officials in accordance with nationally established standards. The NSBA, which answers to the minister of health promotion and protection, is now responsible for regulating all combat sports.
Notes: Authority record based on Statutes of Nova Scotia: 1973 c. 3, 1977 c. 71, 1981 c. 55.
