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.
