The British Basketball Federation (BBF) is governed by and adopts the FIBA Regulations Book 4 on Anti Doping and the UK Anti Doping Rules (as per Article 1.1.3) and any amendments there to, as part of its Integrity Policy Framework.
All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean. We believe in clean sport and work in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and FIBA to ensure that the integrity of our sport is protected.
In anti-doping, athletes are responsible for their actions: including what they eat and drink. This is known as the principle of ‘strict liability’
The BBF has in place a set of anti-doping rules that all athletes and athlete support personnel must abide by. The anti-doping rules for the BBF are consistent with the World Anti-Doping Code (the Code), the core document that harmonises anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport globally
The anti-doping rules of the BBF are the rules published by UK Anti-Doping (or its successor), as amended from time to time.
The BBF, its members and licensed leagues take a united stance against the use of all prohibited substances.
The BBF works closely with FIBA and UKAD in enforcing a zero tolerance on these matters.
