The National Anti-Doping Code (NADC)

For the German sport the anti-doping regulations of the National Anti Doping Agency, the (NADC), are the most important sports overarching rules in the field of doping. As the NADC is based on the World Anti-Doping Code (WADC) and its relevant so-called "International Standards", the prescribed mandatory sections by WADA (e.g. article 2 violations against anti-doping rules) have to be taken over and implemented by NADA and the sports federations.

By adopting the WADC in Leipzig on 10 December 2003, the NADA, together with the former National Olympic Committee for Germany, has undertaken to translate the WADC into sporting reality. The NADC the Germany-wide implementation on the basis of the WADC.

Version one of the NADC was approved by the NADA's Board of Directors in late October 2004, and implemented by the German sport federations by the end of 2005.

In response to empirical feedback and comments both from the national sport federations and from the WADA, the NADC was reviewed during the 2nd half of 2005, with the revised version approved by the Board of Directors on 14th December 2005. It came into force 1st April 2006 for the athletes and national sport federations. The NADC was reviewed once more, following the revision of the WADC, and in this version came into force on 1st January 2009, thus replacing the NADC 2006. The revised version of the Code has applied since 1st July 2010. In order to meet current requirements, the NADC was fundamentally revised for 2015 again. More information on NADC 2015 can be found on the .

To sum up, it must be stated that the new NADC (and analogously the WADC) constitute an important step on the way towards ensuring more international justice, thus simultaneously increasing equality of opportunity.
