It must fulfill amongst other conditions:

that a proposed sport need to be widely practised by men in 75 countries on four continents and by women in 40 countries on three continents

Thanks Mereh...

In the collation of your contribution I've come across the following and ammended accordingly.....

..... in your list from pucku.org there is no mention of Holland so this has been included
..... in your list, Great Britain has been replaced by United Kingdom.... so, in the latest update (see firstpost)... Ive changed the layout to list countries and included their 3 letter abbreviation that the IOC gives them....
