General 7. The new updated Code comes into effect from January These anti-doping regulations are adopted and implemented in conformance with BWF's responsibilities under the Code, and are in furtherance of the BWF's continuing efforts to eradicate doping in the sport of Badminton. Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.
It also applies to employees and contractors of the BWF and any other person who has agreed to be bound by it. It is the responsibility of each Member Association to ensure that all national-level Testing on the Member Association's Players complies with these anti-doping regulations. In some countries, the Member Association itself will be conducting the Doping Control described in these anti-doping regulations.
In other countries, many of the Doping Control responsibilities of the Member Association have been delegated or assigned by statute or agreement to a National Anti-Doping Organisation. In those countries, references in these anti-doping regulations to the Member Association shall apply, as appropriate, to the Member Association's National Anti-Doping Organisation. This convention is continued in the BWF anti-doping regulations.
The following constitute anti-doping regulation violations: Players are responsible for any Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers found to be present in their bodily Specimens. It is sufficient that the Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method was Used or Attempted to be Used for an anti-doping regulation violation to be committed. The standard of proof shall be whether the BWF or its Member Association has established an anti-doping regulation violation to the comfortable satisfaction of the hearing panel bearing in mind the seriousness of the allegation which is made.
This standard of proof in all cases is greater than a mere balance of probability but less than proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The following rules of proof shall be applicable in doping cases: The Player or other Person may rebut this presumption by 3. If the Player or other Person rebuts the preceding presumption by showing that a departure from the International Standard for Laboratories occurred which could reasonably have caused the Adverse Analytical Finding, then the BWF or its Member Association shall have the burden to establish that such departure did not cause the Adverse Analytical Finding.
If the Player or other Person establishes that a departure from another International Standard or other anti- doping regulation violation or policy which could reasonably have caused the Adverse Analytical Finding or other anti-doping regulation violation, then the BWF or its Member Association shall have the burden to establish that such departure did not cause the Adverse Analytical Finding or the factual basis for the anti-doping regulation violation.
As described in Article 4. The BWF may also request that WADA include additional substances or methods, which have the potential for abuse in the sport of Badminton, in the monitoring program described in Article 4. Prohibited Methods shall not be Specified Substances. Target Testing will be made a priority. Testing may be conducted by qualified persons so authorised by the BWF. If the Sample is collected for screening only, it will have no consequences for the Player other than to identify the Player for a urine test under these anti- doping regulations.
In these circumstances, the BWF may decide at its own discretion which blood parameters are to be measured in the screening Sample and what levels of those parameters will be used to indicate that a Player should be selected for a urine test.
The BWF shall review and update as necessary its criteria for including Players in its Registered Testing Pool, and shall revise the membership of its Registered Testing Pool from time to time as appropriate in accordance with the set criteria.
The BWF may give notice of a different period than six months at the time of receipt of notification of retirement. The Referee has discretion to cancel the Test. Samples used for purposes other than Article 6.
The circumstances and conditions for retesting Samples shall conform with the requirements of the International Standard for Laboratories. The result of that application shall be forwarded to the BWF for consideration in its review of the Adverse Analytical Finding under Regulation 7.
A Player may accept the A Sample analytical results by waiving the requirement for B Sample analysis.
A representative of the Player's Member Association, as well as a representative of the BWF, shall also be allowed to be present. If, once that investigation is completed, it is concluded that the Atypical Finding should be considered an Adverse Analytical Finding, the BWF shall pursue the matter in accordance with Regulation 7. Any apparent anti-doping regulation violation by a Player who is a member of that Member Association shall be promptly referred to an appropriate hearing panel established pursuant to the rules of the Member Association or national law.
Apparent anti-doping regulation violations by Players who are members of another Member Association shall be referred to the BWF for hearing. Results management in respect of an apparent Missed Test by such Player as a result of an attempt to test the Player by or on behalf of another Anti-Doping Organisation shall be conducted by that other Anti-Doping Organisation in accordance with Article Member Associations shall impose Provisional Suspensions in accordance with the principles set forth in this Regulation 7.
If a Player or other Person retires before any results management process has begun, the BWF if it had jurisdiction over the Player or other Person at the time the Player or other Person committed an anti-doping violation has jurisdiction to conduct results management.
The Chair will as far as practicable appoint a lawyer to the Doping Hearing Panel, if that is not practicable, BWF shall ensure that the panel has independent legal advice available to it. The appointed members shall have had no prior involvement with the case and shall not have the same nationality as the Player or other Person alleged to have violated these anti-doping regulations.
Where there are insufficient Panel members due to prior involvement, a nationality constraint, or unavailability, the BWF President may appoint such additional Panel members as may be required. Hearings held in connection with Events may be conducted on an expedited basis. Where no hearing occurs, the BWF shall submit to the persons described in Regulation Hearings held in connection with Events may be conducted by an expedited process.
If the completion of the hearing is delayed beyond three months, the BWF may elect to bring the case directly before the BWF Doping Hearing Panel at the responsibility and at the expense of the Member Association.
Where no hearing occurs, the National Federation shall submit to the persons described in Regulation First violation: Two 2 years' Ineligibility. An anti-doping regulation violation involving a Minor shall be considered a particularly serious violation, and, if committed by Player Support Personnel for violations other than Specified Substances referenced in Regulation 4. In addition, significant violations of Regulations 2.
At a minimum, a reprimand and no period of Ineligibility from future Events, and at a maximum, two 2 year's Ineligibility.
To justify any elimination or reduction, the Player or other Person must produce corroborating evidence in addition to his or her word which establishes to the comfortable satisfaction of the hearing panel the absence of an intent to enhance sport performance or mask the Use of a performance-enhancing substance.
In the event this Regulation is applied and the period of Ineligibility otherwise applicable is eliminated, the anti-doping regulation violation shall not be considered a violation for the limited purpose of determining the period of Ineligibility for multiple violations under Regulation If the otherwise applicable period of Ineligibility is a lifetime, the reduced period under this Regulation may be no less than eight 8 years.
After a final appellate decision under Regulation 13 or the expiration of time to appeal, the BWF may only suspend a part of the otherwise applicable period of Ineligibility with the approval of WADA. No more than three-quarters of the otherwise applicable period of Ineligibility may be suspended. If the otherwise applicable period of Ineligibility is a lifetime, the non-suspended period under this Regulation must be no less than eight 8 years.
If the BWF suspends any part of the otherwise applicable period of Ineligibility under this Regulation, the BWF shall promptly provide a written justification for its decision to each Anti-Doping Organisation having a right to appeal the decision. If the BWF subsequently reinstates any part of the suspended period of Ineligibility because the Player or other Person has failed to provide the Substantial Assistance which was anticipated, the Player or other Person may appeal the reinstatement pursuant to Regulation If the Player or other Person establishes entitlement to a reduction or suspension of the period of Ineligibility under two or more of Regulations A Player or other Person can avoid the application of this Regulation by admitting the anti- doping regulation violation as asserted promptly after being confronted with the anti-doping regulation violation by the BWF.
The anti- doping regulation violation was or should be sanctioned by a reduced sanction under Regulation The anti-doping regulation violation was or should be sanctioned under Regulation The anti-doping regulation violation was or should be sanctioned by a reduced sanction under Regulation St Standard sanction under Regulations The anti-doping regulation violation was or should be sanctioned by the standard sanction of two years under Regulation AS Aggravated sanction: The anti-doping regulation violation was or should be sanctioned by an aggravated sanction under Regulation The anti-doping regulation violation was or should be sanctioned by a sanction under Regulation Where a Player or other Person who commits a second anti-doping regulation violation establishes entitlement to suspension or reduction of a portion of the period of Ineligibility under Regulation The remaining period of Ineligibility, after applying any suspension or reduction under Regulations In these particular cases, the period of Ineligibility shall be from eight 8 years to life ban.
Results in all Competitions dating back to the earlier anti-doping regulation violation will be Disqualified as provided in Regulation To avoid the possibility of a finding of Aggravating Circumstances Regulation The same regulation shall also apply when the BWF discovers facts involving another prior violation after the resolution of a second anti-doping regulation violation. Any period of Provisional Suspension whether imposed or voluntarily accepted shall be credited against the total period of Ineligibility imposed.
In each case, however, where this Regulation is applied, the Player or other Person shall serve at least one-half of the period of Ineligibility going forward from the date the Player or other Person accepted the imposition of a sanction, the date of a hearing decision imposing a sanction, or the date the sanction is otherwise imposed.
In addition, for any anti-doping regulation violation not involving Specified Substances described in Regulation A Person subject to a period of Ineligibility longer than four years may, after completing four years of the period of Ineligibility, participate in local sport events in a sport other than sports subject to the jurisdictions of the BWF and its Member Associations, but only so long as the local sport event is not at a level that could otherwise qualify such Person directly or indirectly to compete in or accumulate points toward a national championship or International Event.
A Player or other Person subject to a period of Ineligibility shall remain subject to Testing. The new period of Ineligibility may be reduced under Regulation The determination of whether a Person has violated the prohibition against participation, and whether a reduction under Regulation If a Player subject to a period of Ineligibility retires from sport and is removed from Out-of-Competition Testing pools and later seeks reinstatement, the Player shall not be eligible for reinstatement until the Player has notified the BWF and the applicable Member Association and has been subject to Out-of-Competition Testing for a period of time equal to the period of Ineligibility remaining as of the date the Player had retired.
The Member Association shall be responsible for conducting the necessary tests, but tests by any Anti-Doping Organisation may be used to satisfy the requirement.
The results of such tests shall be reported to the BWF. Once the period of a Player's suspension has expired, and the Player has fulfilled the conditions of reinstatement, then the Player will become automatically re-eligible and no application by the Player or by the Player's Member Association will then be necessary.
However, no financial sanction may be considered a basis for reducing the period of Ineligibility or other sanction which would otherwise be applicable under the Code. If more than two members of a team in a Team Sport are found to have committed an anti-doping regulation violation during an Event period, the BWF shall impose an appropriate sanction on the team e. In such event the BWF may in its discretion elect to: For purposes of this Regulation, any fine paid pursuant to Regulation If four or more violations of these anti-doping regulations other than violations involving Regulations 2.
Such decisions shall remain in effect while under appeal unless the appellate body orders otherwise. Before an appeal is commenced, any post-decision review authorised in Regulation 8. In cases under Regulation For cases under Regulation When the BWF, National Anti-Doping Organizations or other bodies designated by Member Associations fail to take action on a properly submitted TUE application within a reasonable time, their failure to decide may be considered a denial for purposes of the appeal rights provided in this Regulation.

The Rules of each Member Association shall specifically provide that all Players, Player Support Personnel and other Persons under the jurisdiction of the Member Association shall be bound by these anti- doping regulations. In any case in which the period of Ineligibility is eliminated under Regulation Once a violation of these anti-doping regulations has been established, it shall be Publicly Reported within 20 days. The BWF or its Member Association must also report within 20 days appeal decisions on an anti-doping rule violation.
The BWF or its Member Association shall use reasonable efforts to obtain such consent, and if consent is obtained, shall publicly disclose the decision in its entirety or in such redacted form as the Player or other Person may approve.
