Global Anti-Doping Framework and Governance

Anti-doping is regulated globally by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), jointly funded by the sports movement and governments.

Athletes are at the centre of the work undertaken by several organisations to ensure clean competition at every level. UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) is an active participant in the global fight against doping in sport, contributing to international groups, forums and committees to achieve greater anti-doping standards worldwide. Anti-doping is an international issue that requires a global effort, and UKAD is committed to playing its part.

UKAD has developed strong working relationships with each of the groups below, providing expertise and input across a range of subjects to help contribute towards improved anti-doping practice.

Athletes, especially those competing internationally, should take interest in the global clean sport movement and understand fully which anti-doping organisation has jurisdiction over them at any given time.
