In 2015 a revised WADA Code came into effect. There are a number of significant changes to the Code and the supporting International Standards.
The updated Code is available in full below along with some guidance notes on the major changes from UKAD. There is also a UKAD microsite dedicated to the 2015 Code which holds further information.

ECB and ICC Anti-Doping Rules
The ECB issues revised anti-doping rules at the start of each year in line with the requirements of the WADA Code. As a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) the ECB also harmonises its rules to adopt, where appropriate the anti-doping code of the ICC. It is important for all players, coaches and support staff to familiarise themselves with the anti-doping regulations relevant to their competition to ensure that they are aware of the obligations and requirements placed upon them.
