To reflect the new changes to the 2015 Code, we have amended and updated the UK Anti-Doping Rules. This will mean changes in your approach to anti-doping. We have been in regular contact with your organisation to discuss these changes, but we hope the information listed below will be of further assistance. You can view the 2015 Code via the below PDF:
The 2015 UK Anti-Doping Rules
UK Anti-Doping has prepared an updated version of the UK Anti-Doping Rules which can be adopted by any UK NGB. Most NGBs that already use the UK Anti-Doping Rules will adopt these new Rules automatically. You can view the 2015 Rules via the below PDF:

Will we have to update all of our information resources and education delivery materials?
Yes. If you provide anti-doping education sessions and/or information resources, any anti-doping information on your website to your athletes, ASP or wider members, then this must be updated to reflect the 2015 Code.
In the 2015 Code there is a clear separation between ‘information’ (website, booklets, posters, resources) and ‘education’ (face-to-face workshops, e-learning).
Education is a mandatory component of the 2015 Code and organisations must ensure they implement values-based prevention through education programmes for both athletes and athlete support personnel (ASP). In addition, anti-doping information must be available to all athletes, ASP and members under your jurisdiction.
