2022 WADA Rules

The World Conference on Doping in Sport held in Lausanne on 2-4 February 1999 produced the Lausanne Declaration on Doping in Sport. This document provided for the creation of an independent international anti-doping agency to be fully operational for the Games of the XXVII Olympiad in Sydney in 2000.

Pursuant to the terms of the Lausanne Declaration, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) was established on 10 November 1999 in Lausanne to promote and coordinate the fight against doping in sport internationally. WADA was set up as a foundation under the initiative of the IOC with the support and participation of intergovernmental organizations, governments, public authorities, and other public and private bodies fighting against doping in sport. The agency consists of equal representatives from the Olympic Movement and public authorities.

FIAS became signatory of WADA Anti-Doping Code on 8 August 2006. By signing WADA Code FIAS proved to be adhered to internationally recognized fair play principles and got eligible to apply for IOC recognition.

Thus being member of FIAS and officially recognized governing body for SAMBO development in Asia the ASF must develop its own anti-doping strategy. And Asian SAMBO Federation is dedicated to make its own contribution to fight doping and all prohibited medical substances in SAMBO movement of Asia.

The regional anti doping rules set by Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) The OCA is the supreme authority of the Asian Games, Winter Asian Games, Asian Indoor Games and Beach Games and any other sports events being held under the auspices of the OCA. Any person or organization belonging in any capacity whatsoever to the OCA is bound by the provisions of the OCA Constitution and shall abide by the decisions of the OCA and follow the OCA Anti-Doping rules.

The Olympic Council of Asia has formed its own OCA Anti-Doping Rules in accordance with the WADA Code, expecting that, in the spirit of sports, it will contribute to the fight against doping in the Sports Movement in Asia. The Rules are complemented by other OCA documents and International Standards addressed throughout the Rules.

The OCA Anti-Doping Rules were accepted in the 23rd OCA General Assembly held in Doha on 1st of October 2004. Subsequently in consultation with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) certain changes were made to the rules and the final version was approved and accepted by OCA in its Executive Board Meeting held in Kuwait on 5th of February 2005.

On the occasion of the 24th OCA General Assembly held in Guangzhou (China) on 9th of September 2005, H.H. Sheikh Ahmad Fahad Al-Sabah, OCA President officially signed the WADA code.
