The BASES-UKAD Partnership
BASES is committed to promoting clean sport and works in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) to ensure that the integrity of sport is protected. The use of performance-enhancing drugs and doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport.
BASES and UKAD have developed a Strategic Partnership Agreement that defines the roles and responsibilities of each organisation in promoting clean sport and raising awareness of issues relating to doping and performance-enhancing drugs.
Who are UKAD?
UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) is the national anti-doping agency for the UK, dedicated to protecting a culture of clean sport – it achieves this through implementing education and testing programmes, gathering and developing intelligence and prosecuting those found to have committed an Anti-Doping Rule Violation.
UKAD is responsible for ensuring sports bodies in the UK are compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code through the implementation and management of the UK’s National Anti-Doping Policy.
How can you get involved?
UKAD’s Introduction to Clean Sport eLearning is for anyone wishing to become more knowledgeable in the essentials of Clean Sport. All athlete support personnel (ASP) need to know the essential anti-doping practices and tools available, to help ensure athletes remain clean.
The BASES Integrity Advisory Group (IAG) is a forum to provide expert advice and opinion on behalf of the sector, on actions, policy development and activities that will protect the integrity of sport and the profession of sport an exercise science in the UK. The IAG includes representation from clean sport and the vision is that this group will support the Partnership with increasing knowledge and awareness of the roles and responsibilities of athlete support personnel (ASP) in relation to clean sport.
Where to find support and advice
BASES works with UKAD to support the development of educational resources and guidance for athletes and athlete support personnel (ASP). The UKAD website hosts a wide range of resources, tailored around different roles within sport:
