WADA reminds stakeholders that the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code, International Standards and Athletes’ Anti-Doping Rights Act are now in force

11 January 2021

The World Anti-Doping Agency reminds stakeholders that, effective today, the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code (Code); the following International Standards (Standards); and, the Athletes’ Anti-Doping Rights Act (Act) have entered into force. The documents, which were subject to a two-year stakeholder consultation process, were approved on 7 November 2019 during the Agency’s World Conference on Doping in Sport that was held in Katowice, Poland. 

    International Standard for Code Compliance by Signatories (ISCCS)
    International Standard for Education (ISE) (New)
    International Standard for Laboratories (ISL)
    International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI)
    International Standard for Results Management (ISRM) (New)
    International Standard for Testing and Investigations (ISTI)
    International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE)

As it relates to the International Standard for the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (Prohibited List), it is reviewed annually via a separate stakeholder consultation process; and, was published separately earlier today.
The 2021 Code, which follows on from previous versions that entered into effect in 2004, 2009 and 2015, includes a number of important changes to global anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) around the world. It works in conjunction with the eight Standards that foster consistency among ADOs in technical areas. The Athletes’ Anti-Doping Rights Act, which was developed by WADA’s Athlete Committee in consultation with thousands of athletes and stakeholders worldwide, is based on the 2021 Code and Standards and aims to ensure that athlete rights within anti-doping are clearly set out, accessible, and universally applicable.
