The Olympic committee was formed on June 4, 1992. It grew out of the ZOI '84 organization, organizers of the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo. The committee maintains the Museum of the XIV Winter Olympiad.[2] The first president of the committee was Stjepan Kljuić, with Izudin Filipović being the first secretary general.[3] It became full IOC and European Olympic Committee member in 1993.

Shortly after founding, the committee drafted the first athletes to participate under the Bosnian flag in Olympic games for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. As of March 2010 no athletes from Bosnia and Herzegovina have won medals in Olympic games.
