|Welcome to our 2015 World Anti-Doping Code guide|
Introduction from Minister for Sport, Tourism and Equalities Helen Grant:
“In 50 days, a new World Anti-Doping Code comes into effect. This is the result of over 18 months of active consultation by the World Anti-Doping Agency and signals a further evolution of the world-wide framework that drives the fight against doping.
“The purpose of revising the Code is to better protect clean athletes around the world. Successful implementation will mean an innovative and robust anti-doping programme that reaches further than ever before, to more athletes, more support personnel and more sport lovers, all of who want to be part of sport free from doping.
“Like all those who care passionately about clean sport, we have long argued that the Code should be tough on those who cheat. The World Anti-Doping Agency listened and from 1 January, we will see tougher sanctions – not just for athletes, but also for those who assist in the doping process.
“The United Kingdom remains committed to playing a full and active part in the global fight against doping in sport. I am confident that UK Anti-Doping will actively lead the way in ensuring everyone understands their rights and responsibilities towards clean sport in this country.
“I encourage you to use these resources to ensure you are best prepared for 1 January and do not risk compromising the integrity of your sport.”
