Rules to Protect Clean Sport

UK Anti-Doping is responsible for testing, investigations and results management for the determination of Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs).

What’s banned
in sport?

All the substances and methods banned in sport are set out in the Prohibited List, managed and coordinated by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

Don't get caught out
with Prohibited Association

If you know that someone is serving an anti-doping ban, and you associate with that person in a “professional or sport-related capacity”, then you are at a real risk of violating the Prohibited Association Rule, and could face up to a two-year ban from all sport if this is your first violation.

What are the consequences of doping?

The majority of athletes are clean, but if you’re found doping and face a ban from sport you could also suffer consequences to your health, psychological and mental well-being.

Athletes serving
ADRV bans

The World Anti-Doping Code states that Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) are published following a successful prosecution by UKAD.
