The IFFF has adopted the World Anti-Doping Code. These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in compliance with the IFFF’s responsibilities under the Code and are in furtherance of the IFFF’s continuing efforts to prevent doping in competitive functional fitness.
Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Athletes and other Persons accept these rules as a condition of participation and shall be bound by them. These sport specific rules and procedures, aimed at enforcing anti-doping policies in a global and harmonized manner, are distinct in nature and, therefore, not intended to be subject to or limited by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal proceedings or employment matters. When reviewing the facts and the law of a given case, all courts, arbitral tribunals and other adjudicating bodies should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of the anti-doping rules in the Code and the fact that these rules represent the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around the world with an interest in fair sport.
These Anti-Doping Rules shall apply to the IFFF, each National Federation of the IFFF, and each Athlete or other Person involved in the activities of the IFFF or any of its National Federations by virtue of the Athlete or other Person’s membership, accreditation or participation in the IFFF or its National Federations’ activities and/or Events.
