Attention: National Federations, Confederations, IWWF Council and Committee members,

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT NEW ANTI-DOPING RULES FOR 2021

From the 1st January 2021, the new IWWF Anti-Doping Rules will come into force.

There are changes with which you should familiarise yourselves and your athletes, so please circulate these rules as quickly as possible to all your athletes.

Equally these can be found on IWWF’s Anti-Doping website.

All information about Anti-Doping can be found on the  IWWF’s Anti-Doping website, including but not limited to:

  • Education tools to assist you in coaching your athletes and officials
  • Obtaining Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE’s) should these be needed by your athletes

  • Various leaflets and videos about the doping control process

Remember it is your role to make sure your athletes are clean competitors and to educate them about the dangers of doping.
