Documents & regulations

The current World Anti-Doping Code was drafted in 2015 and is in force until 31/12/2020. It is the core document that provides the framework for harmonized anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport organizations and among public authorities. It works in conjunction with 6 International Standards aimed at bringing harmonization among anti-doping organizations in various areas: Testing & Investigations (ISTI), Laboratories (ISL), Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI), Code Compliance by Signatories (ISCCS) and the Prohibited List.
