The World Aquatics Integrity Code establishes clear integrity standards for persons involved in Aquatics, to prohibit conduct that might undermine public confidence in the integrity of Aquatics and/or in the uncertainty of outcome of events, and to establish effective mechanisms for enforcement of this Integrity Code and sanctions for its violation.
Doping Control Rules
These Anti-Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with World Aquatics' responsibilities under the Code, and in furtherance of World Aquatics’ continuing efforts to eradicate doping in the aquatic sports.
Rules on the Protection from Harassment and Abuse
These Rules are the foundation for athlete safety, well-being and the prevention of harassment and abuse.
