“Fundamental to sport being enjoyed by all is sporting conduct; the way sport is played. Across all sports there must be a commitment to ensuring standards are set for fair play and then enforced. Doping in sport is cheating. It is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport and is detrimental to the positive impact of sport in society. The elimination of doping in sport requires a commitment by all, to ethical practice and upholding standards of fair play. It requires consistent and accountable decision-making and sanctioning of participants who are found guilty of a doping violation.”
Ice Hockey UK Resolution – Adoption of the UK Anti-Doping Rules
The Management Board of Ice Hockey UK hereby resolves that the anti-doping rules of Ice Hockey UK as set out in “IHUK Anti-Doping Rules 2007” shall, as from the 1st of January 2009, stand repealed and shall be replaced by the following rule:
“The anti-doping rules of Ice Hockey UK are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by the Drug-Free Sport Directorate of UK Sport (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as the rules of
Ice Hockey UK.’
1. In the UK Anti-Doping Rules, the term ‘NGB’ should be read as ‘Ice Hockey UK’
2. In the UK Anti-Doping Rules, the term ‘International Federation’ should be read as ‘the International Ice Hockey Federation.’
It is every athlete’s personal responsibility:
To acquaint him/herself, and to ensure that each Person from whom he/she takes advice (including medical personnel) is acquainted, with all of the provisions of these Rules; and
To take responsibility for what he/she ingests and uses; and
To ensure that any medical treatment he/she receives does not infringe these Rules.
Therapeutic Use Exemptions:
The rules permit athletes and their physicians to apply for permission to use, for therapeutic purposes, substances or methods on the Prohibited List whose use is otherwise prohibited. In order to excuse the presence or use or possession of a prohibited substance or prohibited method that would otherwise amount to a doping offence, a Therapeutic Use Exemption must be obtained that covers such presence or use or possession. Athletes are advised to read section 4 of the Ice Hockey UK Anti-Doping Rules, and Section 1 of the UKAD Anti-Doping Procedures Guide for Sport.
