FIVB maintains commitment to protecting clean athletes

 

The FIVB's Anti-Doping program seeks to preserve the spirit of Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Snow Volleyball, maintain ethics, fair play and honesty and the health of the players. As doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, FIVB wants to keep a clean and level playing field. One of the main aims is to educate Volleyball, Beach Volleyball and Snow Volleyball players and their respective Support Personnel on Doping Prevention as well as informing them on their rights and responsibilities regarding this matter.

This section contains the most relevant rules and regulations concerning Anti-Doping in order for the players and their respective Support Personnel to know their rights and responsibilities regarding this subject.

FIVB Medical & Anti-Doping Regulations

Medical & Anti-Doping Rules, are rules governing the specificities for Medical issues and the Anti-Doping Regulations provided by the WADA Code.

[PDF] FIVB Medical and Anti-Doping Regulations - (in force since 26.04.2022)

[PDF] WADA Code - (in force since 01.01.2021)

In addition, WADA's International Standard for Testing (ISTI) foresee procedures which assure and maintain the integrity of testing and identity of samples, from notifying the athlete to transporting samples for analysis, as well as regulations on Whereabouts requirements in order to conduct unannounced out-of-competition testing and investigations.

Doping Control

Athletes might get tested anytime and anywhere without previous notice, no matter if they are included in an FIVB Registered Testing Pool (RTP) or not. Generally we distinguish In-competition testing and Out-of-competition testing.

“In-Competition” means the period commencing at 11:59 pm on the day before a Competition in which the Athlete is scheduled to participate through the end of such Competition and the Sample collection process related to such Competition.

By default, “Out-of-Competition” is any period which is not “In-Competition”.

For more information about the doping control process, please refer to WADA video below, available in 10 languages at the WADA’s YouTube channel, and to the WADA Leaflet on doping control process, available in 4 languages.

 

Be aware: Refusing, or failing without compelling justification, to submit to Sample collection after notification as authorized in applicable anti-doping rules or otherwise evading Sample collection is considered as an anti-doping rule violation.

Athletes and their Support Personnel (Parents, Coaches, Trainers, Managers, Agents, Team Staff, Officials & Medical Personnel) play an essential role in keeping volleyball as a clean sport. Stay committed and check out your rights and responsibilities in order to avoid inadvertent doping!

It is not simply the detection of a banned substance in a sample that can result in an anti-doping rule violation (ADRV). Please note that there are 11 ADRVs that can result in a sanction and are not only applicable to Athletes, but also to Athlete Support Personnel.

The Prohibited List

The List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List), is the International Standard that designates what is prohibited in- and out-of competition. The List also indicates whether particular substances are banned in particular sports. Substances and methods are classified by categories (e.g. steroids, stimulants, gene doping). The List is updated annually, published by 1 October and comes into effect on 1 January of the following year.

For anti-doping rule violations (“ADRVs”) of presence or use of a prohibited substance, please note the following:

  • If you intended to cheat, whatever the substance, the period of ineligibility is 4 (four) years.
  • Otherwise, it is 2 (two) years – unless you prove you had no significant fault or negligence, in which case ineligibility may be reduced to a minimum of one year.
  • If the violation involved a specified substance or a contaminated product, and you can demonstrate you had no significant fault, ineligibility may range from 2 (two) years to a reprimand (depending on the level of fault). 
  • Please note that multiple ADRVs, or the presence of multiple substances, may increase the sanction beyond 4 (four) years. And for some ADRVs the penalty can be a life ban from sport.

There is also the possibility of a reduction of the sanction if an Athlete (or other person charged) admits guilt promptly following an ADRV or provides useful and reliable information about an ADRV committed by other person, which is known as “substantial assistance” in the WADA Code.

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

Athletes may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications. If the medication an Athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that Athlete the authorization to take the needed medicine.

Please note that as of the 2022 Prohibited List, glucocorticoids (GCs) are prohibited in-competition when administered by all injectable, oral or rectal routes. All relevant information on the use of GCs in Athletes and the general requirements of a TUE can be find in the document below. Please note that the 2023 Prohibited List is already published and will be in force as of 1 January 2023.

The application for a TUE must be made as soon as possible (in case of an Athlete in the Registered Testing Pool, this would be when he/she is first notified of his/her inclusion in the pool) and no later than 30 days before the Athlete’s participation in the event. To obtain a TUE, fill out the M-8 Form in print or type and send it to the FIVB enclosing all relevant medical files.

Results Management – Player's rights

Results Management is the process that deals with possible Anti-Doping Rules Violations (ADRV), starting from the reporting of an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF), also called positive test – when the laboratory reports the presence of a Prohibited Substance or evidence of the use of a Prohibited Method in a sample after analysis – until the final sanctioning of an athlete.
The above WADA doping control video also includes the Results Management process. Once informed of an AAF, the Athlete has the following rights:

To request for the B sample to be analyzed and to attend himself or via his representative the identification, opening and analysis of the B sample;

  • To request copies of the A and B Sample laboratory documentation package;
  • Right of a fair and timely hearing
  • The right to appeal FIVB's decision which may be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)
