World Anti-Doping Code

Resource description

The World Anti-Doping Code (Code) is the core document that harmonizes anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport organizations and among public authorities around the world. It works in conjunction with eight International Standards which aim to foster consistency among anti-doping organizations in various areas.

The Code was first published by the World Anti-Doping Agency in 2003. Prior to 2003, there was no one standardized set of rules for all sports and countries.
