IWBF has successfully concluded World Anti-Doping Agency‘s (WADA) code compliance review and have been confirmed as fully code compliant.

IWBF Secretary General, Norbert Kucera said:

“I want to thank all our National Organisations for their co-operation and support in ensuring we were able to meet WADA’s requirement and our commitment to ensure wheelchair basketball remains a clean sport. Our thanks must also go to FIBA who offer a great amount of expertise, resources and knowledge on the subject.”

IWBF’s focus now shifts to further work on its anti-doping regulations to ensure that we are ready for the adoption of the new World Anti-Doping Code, which will take effect on 2021. To do so, IWBF will continue to work closely with FIBA, WADA and the various stakeholders involved in wheelchair basketball.
