The Asia-Pacific Regional Branch (ILS-AP) of the International Life Saving Federation (ILS) was created during the formation of the ILS in 1993, and is constituted in the ILS Constitution under Article 6.

The ILS-AP is governed by the General Assembly of Members who formally meet each four years. It is proposed to conduct the next Regional General Assembly electronically in 2021.

The ILS-AP leads, collaborates and partners with national and international organisations to prevent drowning, to promote the provision of lifesaving services and oversee lifesaving sport throughout the Asia-Pacific Region of the ILS with the same objectives as ILS as stated in the ILS Constitution.

The ILS-AP has a Regional Constitution and Bye-Laws, the current versions of which can be found below.

The day to day activities of the ILS-AP is managed by the Regional Board of Directors that is comprised of a Regional President, a Regional Secretary General and Regional Directors that represent the Regional Branch in the ILS Board of Directors.
