IWF Anti-Doping rules 2021․
Adopted by the IWF Board - 15.12.2020 effective from 01.01.2021 Amendments made by the IWF Executive Board on 28 March 2021

At the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”)’s Executive Board Meeting held on 15
December 2020, the IWF accepted these Anti- Doping Rules which are based on the 2021 World
Anti-Doping Code (the "Code").

These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with IWF's responsibilities
under the Code, and in furtherance of IWF's continuing efforts to eradicate doping in sport.
These Anti-Doping Rules are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played.
Aimed at enforcing anti-doping rules in a global and harmonized manner, they are distinct in
nature from criminal and civil laws. They are not intended to be subject to or limited by any
national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal or civil proceedings, although
they are intended to be applied in a manner which respects the principles of proportionality
and human rights. When reviewing the facts and the law of a given case, all courts, arbitral
tribunals and other adjudicating bodies should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of
these Anti-Doping Rules, which implement the Code, and the fact that these rules represent
the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around the world as to what is necessary
to protect and ensure fair sport.

As provided in the Code, IWF shall be responsible for conducting all aspects of Doping Control.
Any aspect of Doping Control or anti-doping Education may be delegated by IWF to a Delegated
Third Party, such as the International Testing Agency (ITA), however, IWF shall require the
Delegated Third Party to perform such aspects in compliance with the Code, International
Standards, and these Anti-Doping Rules. IWF has delegated its adjudication responsibilities
and the relevant parts of Results Management to the CAS Anti-Doping Division (“CAS ADD”).
When IWF has delegated its responsibilities to implement part or all of Doping Control to the
ITA or to other Delegated Third Party, any reference to IWF in these Rules should be intended
as a reference to the ITA or to the other Delegated Third Party, where applicable and within
the context of the aforementioned delegation. IWF shall always remain fully responsible for
ensuring that any delegated aspects are performed in compliance with the Code.
Italicized terms used in these Anti-Doping Rules are defined in Appendix 1.
Unless otherwise specified, references to Articles are references to Articles of these Anti-
Doping Rules.

Anti-doping programs are founded on the intrinsic value of sport. This intrinsic value is
often referred to as "the spirit of sport": the ethical pursuit of human excellence through the
dedicated perfection of each Athlete’s natural talents.
Anti-doping programs seek to protect the health of Athletes and to provide the opportunity for
Athletes to pursue human excellence without the Use of Prohibited Substances and Methods.
