Clean sport is UKAD’s vision and athletes are at the core of everything we do. You have the right to participate in sport knowing that you, and your competitors, are clean.
If you are a member of a NGB, and/or compete in any NGB organised or sanctioned events, for example leagues, national championships or races, then anti-doping rules apply to you.
The 2015 Code came into effect on 1 January.
The 2015 Code acknowledges that doping resulting from the use of a contaminated product deserves special attention. If a ‘Contaminated Product’ (which is defined carefully in the Code) results in a positive test then an athlete may, if they have acted responsibly, be treated more leniently as far as a ban is concerned. Nevertheless, athletes must understand using products such as food supplements is a doping risk and that they must take all appropriate steps to manage that risk.
UKAD’s supplement message remains: there are no guarantees that any supplement product is free from banned substances.
