Anti-doping initiatives

With the founding of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in 1999 and 
the commitment of all stakeholders to 
a zero-tolerance policy towards doping, the need arose for a uniform set of rules that applied world-wide. This was implemented for the first time in 2003 with the foundation of the World Anti-Doping Code (WADC). The latest World Anti-Doping Code came into force on 
1 January 2015.
