The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) posts the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC’s) Anti-Doping Rules (Rules) applicable to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, which the IOC published in August 2017.

The IOC, as Code Signatory, has established and adopted these Rules in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) and International Standards; most notably, the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List). The 2018 List was published on 29 September 2017 and comes into force on 1 January 2018.

All athletes competing in the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang will be subject to testing as outlined in the Anti-Doping Rules.

The Rules will cover the period from the opening of the Olympic Village on 1 February 2018 until the day of the closing ceremony of the Games on 25 February 2018. 

During this period, all athletes will be subject to doping controls initiated by the IOC at any time or place, with no advance notice required to be given.
