The fight against doping in DanceSport is assigned the highest priority by WDSF. A signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code from the outset, WDSF has been assessed fully Code compliant by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) ever since. The anti-doping activities required of International DanceSport Federations by the World Anti-Doping Code include conducting testing at competitions and out-of-competition, providing educationial programmes for athletes and officials, and sanctioning those who commit anti-doping rule violations.
The WDSF Anti-Doping Code is the core document that provides the framework for anti-doping policies, rules and regulations. The current WDSF Anti-Doping Code complies with the principles and all mandatory articles of the World Anti-Doping Code that took effect on 1 January 2009.
The WDSF Anti-Doping Code is an integral part of the WDSF Statutes (Article 20). Under the terms of their membership, all National Member Bodies and Associate Members of WDSF are obliged to enforce the WDSF Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code within their own jurisdiction (WDSF Statutes, Article 5, Admission and Termination of Membership).
The WDSF Anti-Doping Code is revised on an annual basis and approved by the General Meeting.
