From the day of the Opening Ceremony up to and including the day of the Closing Ceremony, individual competitors from the Open, Women’s and Mixed Teams will, in accordance with the WBF Anti-Doping Regulations, be randomly selected for anti-doping testing. It is obligatory for selected competitors to undergo such testing. The analyses will be done by WADA accredited laboratories.

The NBOs are invited to pay attention to the Anti-doping Regulations and to ensure that their players are fully aware both of the regulations and of the penalties for not following them.

If a Competitor is undergoing medical treatment for a condition which requires medication on the World Anti-Doping Authority Prohibited list, the Competitor must get a dispensation (TUE) from the WBF Medical Commission.

Any players requiring exemption certificates should ensure that they complete the TUE form and return it as soon as possible and no later than 30 days before the commencement of the competition in which they are participating to
