25 Jun 05 - BBU ANTI DOPING RULES - "PLAY FAIR : 100% Me"

IMPORTANT! (replaces 30 May News item)

After further consultation with UK Sport (The National Anti Doping Authority), the BBU has made a number of small amendments to the final draft (01 June 05) version of the BBU Anti Doping Rules. (The amendments were minor and either cleared anomalies over jurisdiction within the Home Countries or were grammatical changes eg - removal of brackets and italics etc). The BBU has thus formally adopted the Model Anti Doping Rules of UK Sport. These are basically the same for a wide range of sports within the UK, and complement the IBU Rules.

The BBU Rules are effective from 30 Jun 05. They are fully compliant with the WADA Code. Whilst National Squad athletes (all of whom are subject to both in and out of competition testing) are the most affected, all athletes competing at the British Championships can be tested there. The Rules apply to coaches and support staff as well as athletes. National Squad athletes will be required to sign acceptance of the Rules in their "Athlete Contract".

Although the Rules total some 50 pages and are largely concerned with the procedural and disciplinary aspects of Testing, all athletes and support staff should be conversant with them. Military athletes found to be guilty of doping offences may also be subject to Military Disciplinary procedures.

All athletes and support staff should have access to The WADA Prohibited List at all times; it is a mere 10 pages long! National Senior Squad and NDS "A" athletes who are unsure over the propriety or legality of any medicine, supplement or treatment must request clarification with the OMI, through the National Team Coach. Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) should also be applied for through these channels, but, note in particular Article 4 of the BBU Anti Doping Rules. Other athletes should seek further clarification through their doctor, but remember - many GPs and Military Doctors are not experts on WADA. As ever, the onus is on the athlete and the punishments for failing a test are severe. IGNORANCE IS NOT AN EXCUSE!
