    • WADA publishes first ever Athlete Reference Guide to the Code

      September 20, 2014

      The guide, which will act as a crucial point of reference for all athletes looking to enhance their knowledge of the Code, has been championed by members of the WADA Athlete Committee throughout the course of 2013 and 2014.
      The WADA Athlete Committee, whose job it is to represent the views and rights of athletes worldwide, have led and directed the project in time for the introduction of the revised Code at the start of 2015. The document – which is purely a guide, and will not supersede the Code itself – will help athletes the world over better understand the anti-doping framework, rules and regulations.
      The guide provides an explanation of athletes’ roles and responsibilities, details of what constitutes an anti-doping rule violation, information on the Prohibited List and supplements, and details on matters ranging from the ‘Whereabouts’ rule to Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs), amongst other topics.
