BJJAGB Anti-Doping Team, , Accrington, Lancashire, BB5 6PN.
The BJJAGB has in place an anti-doping policy that all athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel must follow. The anti-doping rules for the BJJAGB are consistent with the World Anti-Doping Code (2015 Code), which governs anti-doping internationally.
If you are a member of BJJAGB then this anti-doping policy applies to you, regardless of what level you participate at.
In the UK, the BJJAGB works in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) to prevent doping.
UKAD is the national anti-doping agency for the UK, dedicated to protecting a culture of clean sport – it achieves this through implementing education and testing programmes, gathering and developing intelligence, and prosecuting those found to have committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation.
UKAD is responsible for ensuring sports bodies in the UK are compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code through the implementation and management of the UK’s National Anti-Doping Policy.
