WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, has informed us that IAF is now approved as compliant with the WADA anti-doping code, which stipulates certain activities and procedures as part of the world-wide work against doping in sports.

The IAF anti-doping commitment started with the unanimous decisions of the 2008 IAF General Assembly to approve the Directing Committee proposals for an IAF Anti-doping policy and the IAF Anti-doping Regulations. Since then, the DC has worked closely with WADA representatives and anti-doping experts of SportAccord to establish routines and activities for the anti-doping work within Aikido.

For aikido seminars, public demonstrations, and dan examinations, the WADA rules on TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) may apply. Please consult the national anti-doping organization of the event in question, for specifics about these rules.

For IAF events, if the national anti-doping organization doesn't clarify your situation, please contact the IAF.

Future IAF events where TUE applies:
2012: IAF International Seminar and Aikido Demonstrations, Tokyo, September
2013: Combat Games, S:t Petersburg, October
Other events may be added to the list.

Here you find the IAF Anti-Doping Policy and Rules, which were adapted by the 2008 General Assembly.

The rules and policy are based on WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) rules and policies.

The documents are in PDF format and will open in a new window.
