National Governing Bodies are expected to have an agreed plan in place with UK Sport and Sport England, which sets out how they will meet the governance code reforms, by April 2017.

The plans need to set out how they will comply with all aspects of the code by 31st October 2017.

NGBs will not receive any funding from UK Sport or Sport England until their plans have been agreed by both organisations. Funding will also be contingent on NGBs being fully compliant with the code by 31st October.
