All the substances and methods banned in sport are set out in the Prohibited List, managed and coordinated by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Protecting clean sport depends on everyone playing their part - athletes, coaches, or parents - whether on centre stage or behind the scenes.
Speak out if you feel there’s something wrong - no matter how small.
We have four ways to contact us if you want to speak 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.
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.
The World Anti-Doping Code states that Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) are published following a successful prosecution by UKAD.
