Anti-Doping Program

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) supports the fight against doping in sport in all its forms. The FIH is therefore a signatory to the World Anti-Doping Code.

The FIH is proud that hockey is free from the use of performance enhancing drugs and aims to maintain this situation. The FIH has therefore adopted Anti-Doping Regulations which are in full accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code.

This part of the FIH website provides information about the Regulations and their related procedures. More general information about anti-doping can be found on the WADA website using the link below.

 

Registered Testing Pool (RTP)


To enable dope testing to take place out-of-competition, the WADA Code requires FIH to set up an RTP.  The athletes in the RTP must file information about their whereabouts for one hour every day of the year.  FIH has established an RTP with the following members:

  • The captain or a senior member of each of the top six men’s and women’s teams according to world rankings in winter 2012;
  • Any international player who commits an anti-doping rule violation or who incurs an injury at an FIH competition which, in the opinion of the FIH appointed Medical Officer, is likely to preclude international participation for a period of one month or more.

WADA Resources
