AIBA ANTI-DOPING RULES

INTRODUCTION

PREFACE

AIBA accepted the revised 2015 World Anti-Doping Code (the Code) on (November 10, 2014) and WSB accepted the Code on (November 10, 2014). These Anti-Doping Rules have been duly passed by AIBA and WSB and shall apply from January 1, 2015. These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with AIBA's responsibilities under the Code, and in furtherance of AIBA's continuing efforts to eradicate doping in sport.

Anti-Doping Rules, like Competition rules, are sport rules governing the conditions under which sport is played. Athletes and other Persons accept these rules as a condition of participation and shall be bound by them. These sport-specific rules and procedures, aimed at enforcing anti-doping principles in a global and harmonized manner, 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 AIBA'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.
