World Anti-Doping Program

The World Anti-Doping Program was developed and implemented to harmonize anti-doping policies and regulations within sport organizations and among governments.




In this section, sport and anti-doping organizations can find information about the three levels of the World Anti-Doping Program :

  1. World Anti-Doping Code (Code)
  2. International Standards
  3. Models of Best Practice and Guidelines

Levels 1 (Code) and 2 (International Standards) are mandatory for all Code signatories.

Level 3 (Models of Best Practice and Guidelines, including Model Rules) is recommended by WADA, and is made available to Code signatories upon request but is not mandatory.


Governments have many responsibilities in relation to anti-doping. This section provides an overview of those responsibilities and of the practical tools – including the UNESCO International Convention against Doping in Sport – developed by governments to align their domestic policies with the World Anti-Doping Code.

Also available in this section is a collection of tools that will assist sport and anti-doping organization with the implementation of the Code and the fulfillment of their anti-doping responsibilities.
