Enforcement of Anti-Doping Rules

The Anti-Doping in Sports Act represents the introduction of a regime to discourage the use of drugs and doping methods in sports in The Bahamas.

The Bahamas is a signatory to both the UNESCO International Convention Against Doping in Sport as well as the Copenhagen Declaration on Anti-Doping in Sport.  The Act introduces domestic law, which is aligned with the World Anti-Doping Code.

When reviewing the Anti-Doping rules as put forth by the BADC, the following questions are key:

  1. What is the role of the BADC?
  2. To whom do the rules apply?
  3. What constitutes an Anti-Doping Rules Violation?
  4. What are the penalties or sanctions for violations and how do they apply to team sports?
  5. How are violations and disciplinary matters handled?
