Sanctions

ADRVs

SanctionUnder the World Anti-Doping Code all Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) must be published. All international Athlete Support Personnel (ASP) currently serving, or who have served a ban over the last six years, can be found in the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited Association List.

Redacted sanctions listed on the UKAD website refer to ADRVs in which the Athlete/ASP has served the sanction imposed (i.e. a four-year ban) and is now eligible to participate in sport.
