The 2021

World Anti-Doping Code

On 1 January 2021, a new version of the World Anti-Doping Code will be launched. 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.

Find out all you need to know about the 2021 Code here. UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) will be releasing information for athletes, athlete support personnel (ASP) and national governing bodies (NGB) to make sure everyone is informed about the changes and is compliant by 1 January 2021.

At this stage, NGBs are asked to contact UKAD if they have any questions on how the changes will impact their sport.
