The overall guiding purpose of the International Standard for Education is to support the preservation of the spirit of sport as outlined in the Code and to help foster a clean sport environment. It is recognized that the vast majority of athletes wish to compete clean, have no intention to use prohibited substances or methods and have the right to a level playing field.

Education, as one prevention strategy highlighted in the Code, seeks to promote behavior in line with the values of clean sport and to help prevent athletes and other persons from doping. A key underpinning principle of the International Standard for Education is that an athlete’s first experience with anti-doping should be through education rather than Doping Control.
