Antidoping Agreements and Codes
The operations of FINADA are regulated by UNESCO's International Convention Against Doping and the Council of Europe's Anti-Doping Convention, which have been ratified by the Finnish Parliament. These agreements require that the Goverment of Finland arrange antidoping activities in Finland as required by the conventions. This task has been given to FINADA.
The Goverment of Finland has also committed itself via the UNESCO Convention to support the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA and the World Anti-Doping Code approved by WADA being complied with in Finland. Finland's Antidoping Code is based on the World Anti-Doping Code.
The Ministry of Education and Culture creates the preconditions for the operations of FINADA.
Sports federations are committed to compliance with Finland's Antidoping Code through the Ministry of Education and Culture's funding and their own rules. Sports federations shall have their own antidoping programmes.
