The principle of Strict Liability

The principle of strict liability is applies to all Athletes who compete in any sport with an anti-doping program, including weightlifting. It means that each Athlete is strictly liable for the substances found in their urine and/or blood sample collected during doping control, regardless of whether the Athlete intentionally or unintentionally used a prohibited substance or method. Therefore, it is really important to remember that it is each and every weightlifters’ ultimate responsibility to know what enters their body.

To protect yourself and your Athletes, make sure you are familiar with the Prohibited List and with the risks associated with supplement use.
