Anti doping


International Standards:

World Amateurs K-1 Federation (WAK–1F) recognize and declare that

Federation works according The World Anti-Doping Code (Code). WAK-

1F works in conjunction with five International Standards aimed at

bringing harmonization among anti-doping organizations in various

technical areas, namely:

   Prohibited List

   Testing

   Laboratories

   Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs)

   Protection of Privacy and Personal Information


Athlete Information:

At a World Amateurs K-1 Federation (WAK-1F) works to ensure that

athletes benefit from the same anti-doping protocols and protections,

no matter the nationality or the country where tested. The ultimate

goal is safe and fair competition worldwide.

At a World Amateurs K-1 Federation (WAK-1F) meeting held on (18th

March 2015) in Vilnius Lithuania, WAK-1F Medical Committee accepted

the revised 2015 World Anti-Doping Code (the "Code"). These Anti-

Doping Rules are adopted and implemented in accordance with WAK-

1F's responsibilities under the Code, and in furtherance of WAK-1F's

continuing efforts to eradicate doping in sport. 

These Anti-Doping Rules are sport rules governing the conditions

under which sport is played. Aimed at enforcing anti-doping principles

in a global and harmonized manner, they are distinct in nature from

criminal and civil laws, and are not intended to be subject to or limited

by any national requirements and legal standards applicable to

criminal or civil proceedings. When reviewing the facts and the law of a

given case, all courts, arbitral tribunals and other adjudicating bodies

should be aware of and respect the distinct nature of these Anti-

Doping Rules implementing the Code and the fact that these rules

represent the consensus of a broad spectrum of stakeholders around

the world as to what is necessary to protect and ensure fair sport. 

Fundamental Rationale for the Code and WAK-1F's Anti-Doping


Anti-doping programs seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable

about sport. This intrinsic value is often referred to as "the spirit of

sport". It is the essence of Olympism, the pursuit of human excellence

through the dedicated perfection of each person’s natural talents. It is

how we play true. The spirit of sport is the celebration of the human

spirit, body and mind, and is reflected in values we find in and through

sport, including: 

Ethics, fair play and honesty 


Excellence in performance 

Character and education 

Fun and joy 


Dedication and commitment 

Respect for rules and laws 

Respect for self and other Participants 


Community and solidarity 

Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport. 


Presence of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or

Markers in an Athlete’s Sample 

1. It is each Athlete’s personal duty to ensure that no Prohibited

Substance enters his or her body. Athletes are responsible for

any Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers found to

be present in their Samples. Accordingly, it is not necessary that

intent, Fault, negligence or knowing Use on the Athlete’s part be

demonstrated in order to establish an anti-doping rule violation.

2. Sufficient proof of an anti-doping rule violation is established by

any of the following: presence of a Prohibited Substance or

its Metabolites or Markers in the Athlete’s A Sample where

the Athlete waives analysis of the B Sample and the B Sample is

not analyzed; or, where the Athlete’s B Sample is analyzed and

the analysis of the Athlete’s B Sample confirms the presence of

the Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers found in

the Athlete’s A Sample; or, where the Athlete’s B Sample is split

into two bottles and the analysis of the second bottle confirms

the presence of the Prohibited Substance or

its Metabolites or Markers found in the first bottle. 

3. Excepting those substances for which a quantitative threshold is

specifically identified in the Prohibited List, the presence of any

quantity of a Prohibited Substance or its Metabolites or Markers

in an Athlete’s Sample shall constitute an anti-doping rule


4. As an exception to the general rule of Anti-doping rules, the

Prohibited List or International Standards may establish special

criteria for the evaluation of Prohibited Substances that can also

be produced endogenously.
