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.
These Standards are:
- Code Compliance by Signatories
- Prohibited List
- Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs)
- Testing and Investigations
- Results Management
- Protection of Privacy and Personal Information
Guidelines provide Signatories with recommended practices for several aspects of anti-doping. These Guidelines are not mandatory, but offer technical guidance to ADOs in the implementation of programs. As with the Code and the International Standards. under the World Anti-Doping Program, the Guidelines are subject to ongoing review and reassessment.
