Registered Testing Pools
The National Registered Testing Pool is managed by UKAD and the International Registered Testing Pool is managed by FINA. British Swimming notifies athletes of their inclusion in FINA’s testing pool.
British Swimming work with closely UKAD to ensure the legacy of clean ASA and British Swimming athletes, within the future generations. These athletes will require prevention and protection from doping and education plays a key role in achieving this. We aim to do this by installing a culture of doping-free sport by ensuring that all athletes understand and practice the values of clean sport.
British Swimming (and its members ASA, SASA and WASA) is a member of FINA. FINA are an international body responsible under the World Anti-Doping Agency Code for regulating doping control on all the aquatic disciplines.
