World Anti-Doping Code 2021 / World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). - Montreal : WADA, 2020


The purposes of the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Program which supports it are:

1.) To protect the Athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for Athletes worldwide, and

2.) To ensure harmonized, coordinated and effective anti-doping programs at the international and national level with regard to the prevention of doping, including:

- Education — to raise awareness, inform, communicate, to instill values, develop life skills and decision-making capability to prevent intentional and unintentional anti-doping rule violations.

- Deterrence — to divert potential dopers, through ensuring that robust rules and sanctions are in place and salient for all stakeholders.

- Detection — an effective Testing and investigations system not only enhances a deterrent effect, but also is effective in protecting clean Athletes and the spirit of sport by catching those committing anti-doping rule violations, while also helping to disrupt anyone engaged in doping behavior.

- Enforcement — to adjudicate and sanction those found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation.

- Rule of law — to ensure that all relevant stakeholders have agreed to submit to the Code and the International Standards, and that all measures taken in application of their anti-doping programs respect the Code, the International Standards, and the principles of proportionality and human rights.
