Currently there are four British & Irish Boxing Authority regional councils in the UK & ROI :- Northern, Southern, Scotland and Ireland.
In addition there are a number of overseas regional councils – see below.
Each Regional Council comprises of a Chairman, Secretary, Area Chief Medical Officer, a Chief Inspector and a Boxers Representative. A representative from each Council is also represented on the main board.
The Regional Council receives license applications for all categories and must consider each application fully and make a suitable recommendation to the British & Irish Boxing Authority Head Office.
Only the British & Irish Boxing Authority Head Office has the power to grant an application for a licence, however Regional Councils do have the ability to suspend licences, subject to due process, and arbitrate in disputes between licence holders.
Each Regional Council is also responsible for arranging the British & Irish Boxing Authority courses, such as Referee/Judges, First Aid and Coaches/Cut man courses in their respective Region.
The Regional Council may also consider applications for assistance from former boxers and others involved in boxing within their area, who are in need of financial or other assistance.
