Accordingly, the Policy sets out the roles and responsibilities for UKAD, the Sports Councils, Governing Bodies of sport and the National Anti-Doping Panel.

UKAD is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport [company limited by guarantee].

Die Policy trat 2009 in Kraft, die letzte Version stammt aus dem Jahr 2021.

UK National Anti-Doping Policy, Stand 2022


„The first UK National Anti-Doping Policy (Policy) was published in 2009 to coincide with UK  Anti-Doping (UKAD) being established. The Policy, owned by the UK Government and Devolved Administrations, aims to meet the requirements of the UNESCO Convention against Doping in Sport.
It also ensures the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) is implemented in the UK. Published in January 2018, a recommendation from the Tailored Review of UKAD tasked the UK Government with revising the Policy.
In October 2019, the UK Government conducted a six-week public consultation, inviting feedback on a revised Policy. Since then, UKAD has been advising the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), together with its counterparts in the Devolved Administrations, to create a new version of the Policy, supported by the Assurance Framework.“
