    The IPC acts as the International Federation for ten sports which dates back to the origins of the IPC.

    The sports are:

    - World Para Alpine Skiing

    - World Para Athletics

    - World Para Biathlon

    - World Para Cross Country Skiing

    - World Para Ice Hockey

    - World ParaPowerlifting

    - World Shooting Para Sport

    - World Para Snowboard

    - World Para Swimming

    - World Para Dance Sport

    In its role as the International Federation, the IPC is responsible for the management and governance for the sports and fulfils the following roles:

    - management of all technical aspects, such as rules, rankings, records and athlete classification

    - supervision of World Championships and other competitions co-ordinating closely with local organising committees

    - financial management and administration

    - promotion and communication of each sport

    It is the clear desire of the IPC, relevant stakeholders and IPC Sports representatives to transition these nine sports to independence.
