Under the World Anti-Doping Code, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is the international independent agency responsible for monitoring compliance to the Code of its Signatories, including the IPF. Non-compliance to the Code can have significant consequences on our sport so it is important that the IPF and its member National Federations, including MAP, all work together to ensure compliance.

As stated in the IPF Anti-Doping Rules, IPF holds the responsibility to adopt, implement and enforce anti-doping policies and rules which conform with the Code. It is also the IPF’s responsibility to ensure that all National Federations implement Code-compliant anti-doping programs, rules and policies, as a condition of our membership to the IPF. If MAP does not comply with the IPF Anti-Doping Rules or the Code, IPF is empowered and expected by WADA to impose  applicable and appropriate sanctions on such non-compliant National Federation.

National-level testing shall be done in compliance with the Code, using either Anti-Doping Agency of Malaysia (ADAMAS) or through the IPF’s program.
