Statement of Anti-doping Policy
Formed in March 2010, Anti-Doping Singapore (ADS), established by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports, will take over Singapore National Olympic Council’s (SNOC) Anti-Doping in Sports Commission (SADSC) in overseeing anti-doping matters. The purpose of having a separate anti-doping entity is part of the Singapore Government’s commitment to fight against doping in sport.
As part of ADS’ efforts to combat the use of drugs in sport, Singapore Sailing Federation attended an Anti-Doping Policy briefing session in July 2010. The briefing shed more light on the detailed protocols and procedures for ADS’ functions that are contained in the policy to successfully implement the anti-doping rules that were developed in consultation with key sporting organisations and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
In full support and eradication of doping in sailing in Singapore, Singapore Sailing Federation will endeavour to carry out the following:
- Recognise and accept Anti-Doping Singapore as the National Doping Organisation designated by the Singapore Government as having responsibility for all doping matters relating to sport in Singapore;
- Accept the Anti-Doping Policy of Singapore and the ADS Anti-Doping Rules, both of which are established in accordance with the WADA Code, as the basis for the fight against doping in sport;
- Adopt the ADS and the ADS Anti-Doping Rules either directly or by reference into our governing documents, constitution and/or rules and regulations, and which shall have binding force and effect on our members and Participants;
- Agree to observe, abide by and implement the provisions of the Anti-Doping Policy of Singapore and the ADS Anti-Doping Rules in respect of our affairs and activities.
As the governing body of sailing in Singapore, we urge you to join us in adopting ADS’ best practices in support towards a drug-free sailing community.
