IOF compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code

Posted on | November 21, 2011 | Category: News

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published its Compliance Report, which follows the conclusion of a three-year monitoring process whereby WADA assessed the anti-doping rules and regulations of signatories to the Code. According to the report, the IOF is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code.

The adoption of the Code by the Olympic Movement is mandatory, and only sports that are compliant can be included and remain in the programme of the Olympic Games.

Sports must undertake three steps in order to be fully compliant with the Code: acceptance, implementation, and enforcement.

Code acceptance means that a sport organisation agrees to the principles of the Code and agrees to implement and comply with the Code. Once a sport organisation accepts the Code, it then needs to implement it. Code implementation means that a sport organisation amends its rules and policies to include the mandatory articles and principles of the Code.  Finally, enforcement refers to the sport organisation actually enforcing its amended rules and policies in accordance with the Code.

WADA monitors implementation of and compliance with the Code. The World Anti-Doping Code can be found here.
