At the request of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and as was the case for previous Olympic Games, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) posts the IOC’s Anti-Doping Rules (Rules) and accompanying circular letter applicable to the re-scheduled Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (2020 Games) taking place in July and August 2021.
The IOC, as the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) Signatory responsible for establishing the Rules applicable to the Games, has amended the Tokyo 2020 Rules to be in line with the 2021 Code and International Standards, which are now in force and that will apply to the re-scheduled 2020 Games; most notably, the 2021 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods, which came into force on 1 January 2021.
The Rules will cover the period from the opening of the Tokyo Olympic Village on 13 July until the day of the closing ceremony on 8 August 2021.
During this period, all athletes will be subject to doping controls initiated by the International Testing Agency – to which the IOC has delegated some of its responsibilities related to the implementation of the doping control process during the 2020 Games.
