There is now a page on the FeNZ website about sports drugs and drug testing. The page aims to help fencers understand how the activities of the NZ Sports Drug Agency, particularly the Agency’s testing programmes, may affect them, and it provides links to other sites that contain background information including information about banned substances and doping practices. The page also provides guidance for tournament organizers to help them understand the requirements of Drug Control Officers should a tournament be selected for In-Competition testing. FeNZ’s criteria for establishing whether a fencer needs to be included on the NZSDA’s Out-of-Competition Register are given on the webpage.
Important: If you are thinking about fencing overseas next year, please check this page to see whether you need to be included on the Out-of-Competition Register in order to be eligible to fence in the event. Instructions for what to do if you do need to be registered are provided.
