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 involved in rowing at any level the anti-doping rules apply to you, regardless of your age, or whether you are competing, coaching or supporting rowers.  

If you are a parent or carer, please see the UKAD guidance below for information on how you can best support your child.
