Legal Basis

The bodies responsible for the fight against doping in Switzerland draw their legitimacy from a range of legal structures at both state and private level. In many instances these regulations build upon one another, and there is therefore considerable interaction between them.

Although it is not possible here to give an exhaustive list of the regulations, the menu items in this section indicate some of the important regulatory bases in the Swiss fight against doping. Regulations are listed beginning with agreements under international law, through national public law to both state-directed and autonomous private law.
