It is with great pleasure to inform that on 30th June 2010, International Taekwon-Do Federation-ITF received the confirmation of compliance with the ITF Anti-Doping Rules with Anti-Doping WADA Code.
Please, see the letter received from Mr. Rune Andersen, Director of Standard and Harmonization and Mr. Emiliano Simonelli, Senior Manager, Code Compliance Standards and Harmonization.
I do believe that this was an important day for ITF and all our members in general since compliance with WADA and the ADR are in present times of the most important basic elements for any sport organization in the world.
Being an official Code Signatory is emphasizing our fight for clean sport and a fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport what is in accordance with integrity, the second Tenet of Taekwon-Do and the strategy of development of our organization.
The name of the International Taekwon-Do Federation-ITF is posted in the section Other Organization on the WADA website as an official Code Signatory http://www.wada-ama.org/en/Resources/List-of-IFs/ .
The ITF Anti-Doping Rules are available on the official ITF website in the section Competition.
