To promote and protect the integrity of sport and the health of athletes, the IPC, together with International Federations and the National Paralympic Committees established the IPC Anti-Doping Code.

The aims of the code, which is fully compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency Code, are:

To protect the athlete’s right to participate in doping free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for athletes worldwide.

To ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective anti-doping programmes on the international and national level with regards to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping.

Anti-doping rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. All participants (athletes and athlete support personnel) accept these rules as a condition of participation and are presumed to have agreed to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code.

In addition to the video above, WADA has produced a number of resources for athletes and coaches which can be found below:

Further to this the IPC notes the following:

An Anti-Doping Act has been enacted in Germany.

The purpose of this act is to fight the use of doping substances and doping methods in sport in order to protect the health of athletes, ensure fairness and equal chances in sport competitions and thereby preserve the integrity of sport.

The Act applies to all athletes and support personnel when participating in any IPC event located in Germany.

If you have any questions in relation to this Act and its applicability please send them to antidoping@paralympic.org
