ESNZ General Regulations, Anti-Doping Policy
The Sports Anti-Doping Rules made by Drug Free Sport NZ (DFSNZ) under the provision of the Sports Anti-Doping Act 2006, as presented and amended from time to time by DFSNZ, act as the Anti-Doping Rules for Equestrian Sports NZ. A full copy of these rules is available from www.drugfreesport.org.nz
Drug Free Sport NZ's role is to ensure New Zealand’s athletes do not use banned doping practices, that they understand the dangers and consequences of such practices and that New Zealand continues to be seen by the international community as a doping-free sporting nation. Drug Free Sport NZ will work closely in partnership with the sports community to promote, coordinate and monitor the fight against doping in sport in all its forms.
The mission of Drug Free Sport NZ is:
"To provide a sporting environment free of banned doping methods for New Zealand sport and athletes".
What types of testing does Drug Free Sport NZ conduct?
There are two types of testing, “In competition” and “Out-of-competition” and all testing is done at no notice which means an athlete isn’t given any warning prior to a test.
An “in competition” test is conducted at an event. Athletes on the out-of-competition register can be tested anytime, anywhere (including the athletes home) which is called an out-of-competition test.
