To promote and protect the integrity of sport and the health of athletes, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), together with International Federations and 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 harmonized, co-orindated 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.

The IPC fully supports the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) view that the long-term solution to preventing doping is through effective values-based education programmes that can foster anti-doping behaviors and create a strong anti-doping culture.
