The FEI Anti-Doping Rules for Human Athletes (ADRHA)

As a Signatory of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Code, the FEI has developed Anti-Doping Rules for Human Athletes in compliance with the Code as well as with WADA’s International Standards*.

In the FEI's Anti-Doping Rules for Human Athletes, specific requirements apply to International-level Athletes, which are defined as all athletes registered with the FEI and/or athletes who participate in an International Event (the term "International Event" encompasses events or competitions where the International Olympic Committee, the International Paralympic Committee, an International Federation, a Major Event Organisation, or another international sport organisation is the ruling body for the event or appoints the technical officials for the event, and includes any event included in the FEI Calendar).

* WADA's five International Standards aim at bringing harmonization among anti-doping organisations in various technical areas, namely:

  • Prohibited List
  • Testing and investigations
  • Laboratories
  • Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs)
  • Protection of Privacy and Personal Information
