Major breakthrough in the fight against doping in sport came in March 2003 with the agreement of the World Anti-Doping Code. The Code harmonised regulations regarding anti-doping across all sports and countries of the world, providing a framework for anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport organisations and among public authorities.
Each country and each international sports federation is required to sign up to and implement the Code. National governing bodies of sport then need to ensure they are compliant with the relevant international sports federation and their national anti-doping organisation.
A revised Code was signed off at the World Conference on Doping in Sport in November 2007, and will be implemented on 1 January 2009.
Under-pinning the Code is a set of four International Standards that outline mandatory systems and processes for; testing, the therapeutic use of prohibited substances or methods, the Prohibited List and WADA accredited laboratory processes.
UK Sport has also published the 2009 UK Anti-Doping Rules and the 2009 UK Anti-Doping Procedures Guide for Sport. In addition the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP) have also published their 2009 Procedural Rules.
