All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean.

British Rowing believes in clean sport and works in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and our International Federation, FISA, to ensure that the integrity of our sport is protected.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.

Anti-Doping Rules

British Rowing has in place a set of anti-doping rules that all athletes, coaches and athlete support personnel must abide by. The anti-doping rules for British Rowing are consistent with the World Anti-Doping Code (2015 Code), which governs anti-doping internationally.

You can find the UK Anti-Doping Rules here.

The anti-doping rules of British Rowing are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by UK Anti-Doping (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as the rules of British Rowing.

If you are a member of British Rowing then the anti-doping rules apply to you, regardless of what level you participate at.
