    INTRODUCTION These Anti-Doping rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with BRITISH

    POWERLIFTING’s responsibilities as a National Federation under the Code and the IPF Anti-

    Doping Rules and in furtherance of BRITISH POWERLIFTING's continuing efforts to eradicate

    doping in sport1. Any reference made to Anti-Doping Organisation, refers to the International

    Powerlifting Federation, BRITISH POWERLIFTING or WADA.

    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 BRITISH POWERLIFTING'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 person’s 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.

    NOTE: 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.
