Sports: Drugs

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if she will list the Olympic (a) summer and (b) winter sports that are not compliant with the requirements of UK Sport’s drug testing regime. (126211)

UK Sport’s drug testing programme requires sports to be compliant with their anti-doping ‘Model Rules’.

These ‘Model Rules’ set out the rules and regulations which sports should have in place to be compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code.

Listed are the Olympic summer and winter sports which are not currently compliant, but with whom UK Sport is working to achieve compliance. It should be noted that testing continues to be undertaken on these sports and that sanctions can be applied for any anti-doping rule violation.
