The World Anti-Doping Agency Code is the core document that harmonizes anti-doping policies, rules, and regulations within sports organizations and among public authorities around the world.
Since its inception on 1 January 2004, the Code has proven to be a very powerful and effective tool in protecting clean sport worldwide. This has been demonstrated by the overwhelming support of governments and sports in accepting the Code, in addition to the growing body of jurisprudence from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in supporting the Code's tenants.
The ICSD Anti-Doping Rules for Deaflympics and World Deaf Youth Games 2021 are adopted and implemented in confidence with the ICSD's responsibilities under the Code and are in ICSD's continuing effort in the fight against doping.
These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with ICSD’s responsibilities under the Code and in furtherance of ICSD’s continuing efforts to eradicate doping in deaf sports.
