The Global Drug Information Database (Global DID) is an online service www.uksport.gov.uk/did/ that provides athletes and their support personnel with fast and accurate information about which drugs and other substances are prohibited under the rules of sport.
Visitors can search the Global DID for sport-specific information on products sold in the United Kingdom and Canada. The site also contains information on the classes of substances that are prohibited in sport, therapeutic use exemptions, and tips for athletes who train and compete abroad.
The Global DID is brought to you by a partnership between UK Sport and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport, the national anti-doping agencies of the United Kingdom and Canada. The substance information is updated regularly by professional pharmacists and sport status is based on the World Anti-Doping Agency's current Prohibited List.
UK Sport, as part of its overall sporting excellence remit, is committed to promoting ethically fair and drug-free sport, with the aim of producing sportsmen and women who are competing and winning fairly.
As the country's national anti-doping organistion, UK Sport is responsible for the implementation and management of the UK's anti-doping policy. As part of this, UK Sport co-ordinates the UK's testing programme, which in the past year saw almost 8,000 tests carried out across almost 50 sports. The results of the testing programme are published quarterly and made available on this website www.uksport.gov.uk/did/
Inaddition, UK Sport provides British athletes and their support personnel with a number of services and resources to help them make the right decisions about what substances they can and cannot use. Through its 100% Me campaign, launched in May 2005, UK Sport provides a platform for athletes to celebrate their successes as drug-free competitors, and encourage the next generation of sporting champions to get involved, and enjoy, clean and fair sport.
