The IFBB is a signatory of the World Anti-Doping Code (WADA) and JABBFA is a participant in the WADA code. The Government of Jamaica adopted the World Anti-Doping Programme and the World Anti-Doping Code on November 17, 2003, and became the 97th signatory state to the Copenhagen Declaration on Anti-Doping in Sport on February 10, 2004.

Anti-Doping activities required of JABBFA by the World Anti-Doping Code include creating an environment for the National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADO) to conduct in-competition and out-of-competition testing, providing education programs and adhering to the sanctions imposed on athletes who commit anti-doping rule violations. The National Anti-Doping Organization in Jamaica is the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO). For additional information on anti-doping, you may contact JADCO at:

Address: PBCJ Complex, Building 2

5-9 South Odeon Avenue, Kinston 10

Email: executive@jadco.gov.jm

Telephone: (876) 960-3572

JADCO has the primary authority and responsibility to adopt and implement anti-doping rules, carry out anti-doping education, plan tests and adjudicate anti-doping rule. They are responsible for ensuring that all athletes comply with the World Anti-Doping Code. The main functions of JADCO include the deterrence of doping through communication and education initiatives, the detection of doping through testing activities and investigations and the enforcement of anti-doping rules, by presenting cases of possible Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) to the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel.

JABBFA encourages all athletes to remain drug-free and attend the relevant training sessions to be more informed about Anti-Doping. In order to be eligible to compete JABBFA athletes must attend an anti-doping session, the two sessions recommended:

  1. Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) Senior Athletes Anti-Doping Workshop.
  1. JABBFA Healthy Lifestyles Workshop on Jul 14th, 2018

To register for these sessions please call (876) 589-8264 or email info@jabbf.com
