2015 World Anti-Doping Code approved by WADA

The new Code aims to put the rights of clean athletes ahead of all others
Lausanne, Switzerland, November 16, 2013 – For the fight against doping among athletes, the sports movement and governments of the world approved the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code and four accompanying International Standards on Friday in Johannesburg.

One of the major changes in the new Code is the adoption of a four-year sanction for intentional doping.

At this, the Fourth World Conference on Doping in Sport, the adoption of the Johannesburg Declaration will be seen as a major milestone in the fight against doping in the years to come,” said WADA President John Fahey.

Through the acceptance of the Code and International Standards in South Africa this week, the anti-doping community has left its mark and demonstrated the renewed commitment that both government and the sport movement have towards putting the rights of clean athletes ahead of all others in the years ahead.

We have now put in place an excellent set of rules, and these will require excellent practice from all stakeholders to ensure we catch the cheats and make the sports world a fairer world for the vast majority, the clean athletes.”
