Anti-Doping Rules, Rights and Responsibilities

To be familiar with the rules, rights and responsibilities is important not only to athletes but also to coaches, trainers, medical doctors, veterinarians and other potential athlete support personnel.

Anti-Doping Rules
IFSS has adopted anti-doping rules in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code, governed by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and supported by UNESCO through its global Anti-Doping Convention.

  • IFSS Human Anti-Doping Rules reflects the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Code and its binding International Standards. The rules are based on the principals of human rights and proportionality.
  • IFSS Anti-Doping rules for dogs are not only based on WADA requirements, but also on legal and veterinarian requirements for animals.

NOTE: The principle of Strict liability is of central importance and means that you are solely responsible for any banned substance you use, attempt to use, or is found in your system – regardless of how it got there or whether there was any intention to cheat or not. Not knowing the rules is no excuse.
