Sports Anti-Doping Rules
The Sports Anti-Doping Rules
Most national sports organisations in this country have adopted New Zealand's Sports Anti-Doping Rules (SADRs). The SADRs give effect to the World Anti-Doping Code in New Zealand.
The rules apply to anyone who is a member of - or who participates in - a sport that has adopted or agreed to the SADRs regardless of level of competition, age or role. They apply to athletes, as well as coaches, administrators and support personnel.
