FAI, CIVL and the World Anti Doping Code


FAI, an international federation, endorsed the World Anti-Doping Code in 2003. CIVL reminds pilots competing in FAI Category 1 and 2 events that they must comply to the said Code. You will find more details on the code and procedures on FAI website.


CIVL underlines:

  • The necessity for pilots in need of medication to check the forbidden products list  and, if necessary, make use of the Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs).
  • The specificity of certain recreational drugs that can be detected weeks after they have been absorbed.
  • The risk of anti-doping control in FAI sanctioned competitions.
  • The likely severity of sanctions in case of a failed test.
