The Sri Lankan Government has announced that it will be creating legislation in an attempt to regulate adventure tourism activities in the country.

The policy development office of the Prime Minister’s Office said that 10 advisory committees have been appointed for each field of the adventure tourism service to set up international standards.

According to the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority (SLTDA), which will be carrying out the project, the new regulations will implement ‘carrying capacity limitations, safety requirements [and] minimum requirement for registration as an Adventure Tourism Operator’ as well as requirements.

The guidelines are expected to be developed by March 2018, a statement from the government said.
