What are the steps to becoming Code compliant?
Step 1: Code Acceptance
Agree to the principles of the Code and agree to implement and comply with the Code.
Step 2: Code Implementation
Amend organization rules and policies to include the mandatory articles and principles of the Code.
Step 3: Code Compliance
Enforce amended organization rules and policies in accordance with the Code.
How does my organization achieve Code Implementation (step 2)?
After the initial step of accepting the Code, it is then determined how the Code is to be best implemented by the Code signatory into its rules, regulations and/ or policies in order to ensure compliance. These anti-doping rules must be submitted to WADA for review, in either English or French, in order for the rules to be pronounced in line with the Code.
How does my organization report is status vis-a-vis compliance with the Code?
WADA has developed an online anti-doping survery tool for Code Signatories to use in order to facilitate the fulfillment of their reporting obligation. The questionnaire consists of multiple choice questions which refer to requirements and stipulations within the rules adopted by the Anti-Doping Organization/ International Federation or to the actions taken or not taken by the same organizations.
This online tool will assist WADA in evaluating the status of each Signatory with regards to compliance with the Code and enable WADA to provide guidance, if needed, to achieve complete compliance.
