FIVB Medical Regulations in line with WADA rules

Cagliari, Italy, November 1, 2014 – Starting in 2015 the medical regulations of FIVB must be in line with the rules of WADA and will be renamed as FIVB Medical & Anti-Doping Regulations, it was decided on Saturday.

The 34th FIVB World Congress unanimously approved the proposal submitted by the Medical Commission and presented by its president Yuichiro Hamu during the last day of the meetings on Saturday morning.

The assembly composed by 210 members of National Federations also voted in favor of several decisions recommended by the FIVB Board of Administration.

That includes, among others, the compulsory availability of an ambulance in front of the sport halls during the competitions or within 10 minutes of arrival time, and also the return of anti-doping results within seven days after collecting the sample.

Dr. Hamu also commented on the acceptable use of knee and elbow pads as well as ankle braces but remarked that gloves won’t be allowed, except in case of medical necessity.

All taping will be acceptable but with the recommendation to have it in only one colour while compression pads will be permitted but of the same colour design of the team’s uniform.
