The combat against doping in sport is supported by a couple of important documents – both international and national (e.g. Czech Charter against Doping). You can read these documents, standarts and appendixes in this section.
World Anti-Doping Code
The Code is the core document that provides the framework for harmonized anti-doping policies, rules, and regulations within sport organizations and among public authorities. It works in conjunction with four International Standards aimed at bringing harmonization among anti-doping organizations in various areas: testing, laboratories, therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) and the List of Prohibited Substances and Methods.
This harmonization works to address the problems that previously arose from disjointed and uncoordinated anti-doping efforts, such as, among others, a scarcity and splintering of resources necessary to conduct research and testing, a lack of knowledge about specific substances and procedures being used and to what degree, and an uneven approach to penalties for athletes found guilty of doping.
European Anti-Doping Convention
One of the basic document of the anti-doping programme on an international scale is European Anti-Doping Convention which was done by the Council of Europe at Strasbourg, the 16th day of November 1989. The Czech Republic ratified the document in 1995.
The Conventions claims the combat against doping in sport is essential because sport should play an important role in the protection of health, in moral and physical education and in promoting international understanding.
Czech Charter against Doping
The Czech Anti-Doping Committee (CADC) fights against doping in sport by all possible means. Its fight is declared in the Czech Charter against Doping, the most important local anti-doping document.
The Czech Charter against Doping concurs basic document of the anti-doping programme on an international scale – the World Anti-Doping Code.
The Czech Charter against Doping includes for example the definition of doping, ways of violating anti-doping rules, testing, analysing, result management etc.
