The Combat Sports Act 1987 states in s47(1) “A person must not conduct a contest unless a permit has been issued under this part for a contest” Penalty: A fine of $12,000. 

Permits are required for all contests in Western Australia regardless of the amateur or professional status of contestants.

Part One of the Application for a Promotion Permit must be lodged with the Combat Sport Commission not less than 42 days prior to the promotion.

Part Two of the Application for a Promotion Permit must be lodged with the Combat Sports Commission 21 days prior to the promotion.

All changes to the fight card must be submitted to the Commission in writing and no changes to the fight card will be accepted after the weigh in.

Promotion Permit application fee

The fee to apply for a Promotion Permit is the cost of the highest ticket price plus 10%.

Example:  Where the cost of the highest price ticket at a promotion is $200 to cost of the promotion permit application will be $220 ($200 plus $200 multiplied by 10% which equals $220).
