UKAD is responsible for the implementation and management of the UK’s National Anti-Doping Policy, as well as ensuring the UK is compliant with the UNESCO convention, and the Code, for educating and informing athletes and athlete support personnel, and carrying out anti-doping tests across a number of funded and professional sporting bodies to determine and prosecute anti-doping rule violations.
