Update: 2014 prohibited list changes - see download in 'Downloads' section
Volleyball England prides itself on being a clean sport and works hard to maintain its image. It is committed to ensuring that high standards are set for fair play and a drug-free sport while protecting the spirit of the game.
The establishment of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the production of a WADA Code are intended to provide clean and fair drug free competition throughout the world. Volleyball England through UK Sport has committed itself to uphold the WADA Code.
Under the principle of 'Strict Liability' any banned substance found in a player's body is deemed to be the absolute responsibility of that person. Initially the player's guilt is total although explanations may be considered in mitigating any sanction.
As all players are strictly liable for their own drug free condition they need to take on responsibility for themselves in the following areas:
- Being aware of the latest lists detailing prohibited substances and methods
- Checking the status of any substance used, e.g. over the counter medicines
- Informing a GP or medical practitioner that treatment where possible should not violate anti-doping rules
- Submitting a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) form should it be necessary to use a prohibited substance or method in the treatment of a legitimate medical condition
- Providing accurate whereabouts if part of the OOCT programme
