Anti Doping Singapore

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.
