Since 1st January 2020, the ITTF has signed an agreement with the Court of Arbitration of Sport Anti-Doping Division (CAS ADD), agreeing to delegate its first-instance authority to adjudicate alleged anti-doping rule violations and any sanctions, if applicable, to the CAS ADD and in doing so, accepting the CAS ADD Rules to apply to any doping-related procedure.

WHAT IS DOPING?

In the framework of the World Anti-Doping Code (the Code), to which ITTF is a Signatory, doping is defined as the occurrence of one or more of the anti-doping rule violations. Doping is usually described as being the presence of a prohibited (banned) substance, but there are other ways that an athlete or an athlete’s support personnel can be recognized as having violated an anti-doping rule violation:

  • presence of a prohibited substance in an athlete’s sample
  • use or attempted use by an athlete of a prohibited substance or a prohibited method
  • evading, refusing or failing to submit to sample collection
  • whereabouts failures
  • tampering or attempted tampering with any part of the doping control
  • possession of a prohibited substance or a prohibited method
  • trafficking or attempted trafficking in any prohibited substance or prohibited method
  • administration or attempted administration to any athlete of any prohibited substance or prohibited method
  • complicity
  • prohibited association

What is the Prohibited List (the List)?

It is the single document identifying the substances and methods that are prohibited at all times (in-competition and out-of-competition), in-competition only, and in particular sports. Substances and methods are classified by categories (e.g., steroids, stimulants, gene doping).
