Clean Sport / Anti-Doping

Anti-Doping and IWAS

World Anti-Doping Agency - The Doping Control Process for Athletes

IWAS is committed to the protection and promotion of clean sport at all its competitions. This includes IWAS Wheelchair Fencing and IWAS Powerchair Hockey, for which it is the global governing body, and the IWAS World Games.


Together with other International Federations, our national members and the International Paralympic Committee, IWAS has developed the IWAS Anti-Doping Code.

This document conforms to the general principles of the World Anti-Doping Code from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The IWAS Anti-Doping Code aims to prevent doping in sport for athletes with an impairment by:

  • Protecting an athlete’s fundamental right to participate in a doping free environment in sport and thus promote good health, justice and equality for athletes world-wide
  • Ensuring harmonious, co-ordinated and effective anti-doping programmes throughout an athlete’s competitive pathway with regard to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping

In addition to the IWAS Anti-Doping Code, WADA also has a variety of information and tools available for athletes.

There is an interactive Play True Quiz to test knowledge on anti-doping, as well as online resources for athletes and coaches.

Other useful information, including the full WADA Anti-Doping Code and latest list of Prohibited Substances and Methods (Prohibited List) can also be found below.

For wheelchair fencing, as part of its role as the International Federation, IWAS has a registered testing pool and maintains annual statistics for in and out of competition tests.
