• Disqualification of results in a particular competition or event

For more information on consequences of ADRVs, please refer to the Protocol at BADC website.
When are doping violations publicly announced?
BADC publicly announces doping violations following the conclusion of its results management process or as otherwise provided in the applicable rules. BADC also
announces aggregate data for all test results and arbitration outcomes on its website.
BADC does not comment on cases in process; however, if an athlete, or their
representative, publicly comments while their BADC case is pending, BADC may respond publicly, by providing details about the athlete’s case.
What is the notification process for test results?
Laboratory results reports are sent to BADC. BADC provides notification of the test result to the athlete, the athlete’s NGB, and the BOC. The athlete’s written notification will either be sent through email, if an email address was provided during the test session, and/or by first class/priority mail.
