We at Thai Powerlifting Federation do our best to ensure that our Community remains Drug-Free and our athletes have a level playing field in which they can compete. And in order to do this, we, as a Federation, subsidize any and all costs associated with the anti-doping protocols and drug testing procedures both Nationally and Internationally, not the athlete.

We are wholly committed to ensuring that the integrity of the sport is maintained by enforcing strict doping control systems, in line with World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

WADA produces an Athlete Reference Guide to the World Anti-Doping Code which you may find useful. The Athlete Reference Guide is available here: https://wada-main-prod.s3.amazonaws.com/resources/files/wada-reference-guide-to-2015-code.pdf

The Code boils down to one very simple principle of strict liability:

If it is in your body, you are responsible for it.

It is the responsibility of the athlete to ensure that any supplements or medication that they are taking is in line with WADA standards.
