The Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) was recognized and officially established as the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of Malaysia on the 26 May 1954. OCM is today one of the 200-plus NOC’s round the globe. It has its own constitution which conforms to the principles and rules of the Olympic Charter and the laws of the land.
The Olympic Charter requires the OCM to preserve its autonomy and resist pressures that prevent the Council from complying with the Olympic Charter and from protecting the Olympic rings, emblems and marks.
OCM is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation serving as an umbrella body for all National Sports Associations responsible for and coordinating the participation of their athletes in the Olympic, Asian, Commonwealth and SEA Games and any other multi-sports event. Its fundamental role is to promote Olympic values for life through sport and educational programms.
