World Anti-Doping Code

The Code is an essential document which harmonises anti-doping policies, rules and regulations around the globe and impacts all athletes, coaches, and sports organisations.

From 1 January 2021, a new version of the Code is in effect and it’s important that all athletes and athlete support personnel are aware of how this impacts them.


Under the 2021 Code, an athlete may be classified as being “International-Level”, “National-Level” or a “Recreational Athlete” based on their competition level. To find out which category relates to you, and for further information on changes made to the Code, visit the relevant pages below.
