Anti-Doping Policy

Introduction

Anti-doping is an important part of all National Governing Body’s responsibility. British Fencing take a clear lead on many aspects, however, as the NGB here in Wales, there are some crucial actions that we ne need to take to ensure that all Welsh Fencers are aware of the responsibilities on them, and where information and support can be accessed.

WF have engaged with UKAD and we are continuing to work closely with our UK NGB, British Fencing on the requirements of the UKAD Assurance Framework.

Prohibited List

The Prohibited List is a mandatory International Standard as part of the World Anti-Doping Program. The List is updated annually following an extensive consultation process facilitated by WADA. The effective date of the List is 01 January 2021. The official text of the Prohibited List is maintained by WADA and is published in English and French. In the event of any conflict between the English and French versions, the English version shall prevail.
