  • Bermuda Sport Anti-Doping Authority (BSADA) ANTI-DOPING RULES

    INTRODUCTION

    Preface

    These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with BSADA's

    responsibilities under the Code, and in furtherance of BSADA's continuing efforts to eradicate doping in sport in Bermuda.

    These Anti-Doping Rules are 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 BSADA'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.

    Bermudas continuous commitment to clean sport has been evidenced by the promulgation of the Anti-Doping in Sport Act 2011. BSADA in conjunction with the

  • Bermuda government has dedicated resources to the fight against doping for the last decade. The effectiveness of global collaboration and harmonization with

    WADA, NADOs, RADOs, International Federations, Olympic and Paralympic Associations has been extremely beneficial and a must in ensuring that all athletes

    are and will continue to be provided with fair and just arenas in which to compete.

  • The National Anti-Doping Program

    BSADA was established by the promulgation of the anti-Doping in Sport Act 2011with the objective of acting as the independent National Anti-Doping

    Organization for Bermuda. As such, BSADA has the necessary authority and responsibility for:

     Planning, coordinating, implementing, monitoring and advocating improvements in Doping Control;

     Cooperating with other relevant national organizations, agencies and other

    Anti-Doping Organizations;

     Encouraging reciprocal Testing between National Anti-Doping Organizations;

     Planning, implementing and monitoring anti-doping information, education

    and prevention programs;

     Promoting anti-doping research;

     Vigorously pursuing all potential anti-doping rule violations within its

    jurisdiction, including investigating whether Athlete Support Personnel or other Persons may have been involved in each case of doping, and ensuring proper enforcement of Consequences;

     Conducting an automatic investigation of Athlete Support Personnel within its

    jurisdiction in the case of any anti-doping rule violation by a Minor and of any Athlete Support Personnel who has provided support to more than one Athlete found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation;

     Cooperating fully with WADA in connection with investigations conducted by

    WADA pursuant to Article 20.7.10 of the Code; and

     Where funding is provided, withholding some or all funding to an Athlete or

    Athlete Support Personnel while he or she is serving a period of Ineligibility for violation of anti-doping rules.

    [Comment: It is intended that there should be a National Anti-Doping Organization in each country, and that the National Anti-Doping Organization should be

    independent in operational decisions and activities from all public and sports movement bodies. The principle of independence underpins anti-doping programs

    worldwide and ensures the integrity of the anti-doping work].
