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

The federations are:

- World Para Alpine Skiing

- World Para Athletics

- World Para Biathlon

- World Para Cross-Country Skiing

- World Para Dance Sport

- World Para Ice Hockey

- World Para Powerlifting

- World Shooting Para Sport

- World Para Snowboard

- World Para Swimming

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 ten sports to independence.
