The Government of Singapore was a signatory to the Copenhagen Declaration on Anti-Doping in Sport in 2003 and had also ratified the UNESCO International Convention Against Doping in Sport in 2005, thereby formally recognizing Singapore's commitment to implement the World Anti-Doping Code ("WADA Code").
Anti-Doping Singapore (ADS) was established in 2010 by the then Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports as the national anti-doping authority for Singapore, and is a division within the Singapore Sports Council (rebranded as "Sport Singapore" or "SportSG" with effect from 1 April 2014) responsible for the implementation and management of the Anti-Doping Programme for sport in Singapore.
ADS' primary responsibilities are to:
|(a)||Plan, coordinate and implement an effective doping control programme;|
|(b)||Advocate doping-free sport in Singapore through education programmes;|
|(c)||Monitor National Sports Associations for their compliance with the Anti-Doping Policy of Singapore, the ADS Anti-Doping Rules, and the WADA Code;|
|(d)||Pursue all potential anti-doping rule violations within its jurisdiction;|
|(e)||Encourage reciprocal testing between national anti-doping organisations; and|
|(f)||Promote anti-doping research.|
ADS' mission is to ensure sport in Singapore is free of doping through the implementation of effective education, detection, research and international co-operation initiatives.
Every Singaporean athlete is a True Winner.
