INTERNATIONAL POWERLIFTING FEDERATION (IPF) ANTI-DOPING RULES

INTRODUCTION

Preface

These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with the

IPFs responsibilities under the Code, and in furtherance of the IPF's continuing efforts to eradicate doping in sport1.

These Anti-Doping Rules are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Aimed at enforcing anti-doping principles in a global and

harmonized manner, they are distinct in nature from criminal and civil laws, and are not intended to be subject to or limited by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to criminal or civil proceedings. 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 implementing 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.

Fundamental Rationale for the Code and the IPF's Anti-Doping Rules

Anti-doping programs seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport. This intrinsic value is often referred to as "the spirit of sport". It is the essence

of Olympism, the pursuit of human excellence through the dedicated perfection of each persons natural talents. It is how we play true. The spirit of sport is the celebration of the human spirit, body and mind, and is reflected in values we

find in and through sport, including: Ethics, fair play and honesty

Health Excellence in performance Character and education

Fun and joy Teamwork

Dedication and commitment Respect for rules and laws Respect for self and other Participants

Courage Community and solidarity

Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.

1 Wherever the term sport of Powerlifting or Powerlifting appears in these Anti-Doping

Rules, it refers to Powerlifting and the certain disciplines within the sport of Powerlifting,

including the Bench Press.
