The Business Commission of The Northern Ireland Volleyball Association hereby resolves that The Northern Ireland Volleyball Association Anti Doping Rules shall, as and from the 10 June 2009, stand repealed and shall be replaced by the following rule:
“The anti-doping rules of The Northern Ireland Volleyball Association are the UK Anti-Doping Rules published by the Drug-Free Sport Directorate of UK Sport (or its successor), as amended from time to time. Such rules shall take effect and be construed as rules of The Northern Ireland Volleyball Association, with the addition of the following supplemental provision as new clause 1.2.6”
It is acknowledged that there is an agreement in place between the British Volleyball Association, The English Volleyball Association, The Scottish Volleyball Association and The Northern Ireland Volleyball Association that Team GB Athletes will be subject to the Testing jurisdiction of the English Volleyball Association whilst acting in their capacity as Team GB members, but that the result management process and investigation of possible Anti-Doping rule violations arising out of such Testing (including as to the conduct of any hearing and the imposition of any applicable sanctions) will be governed by and conducted in accordance with the anti-doping rules of the national governing body for the sport of volleyball in the country to which the Team GB Athlete is affiliated. For the avoidance of doubt, all Team GB Athletes therefore agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the English Volleyball Association for the purposes of Testing of Team GB members only and acknowledge that the results management process following such Testing will be conducted, in the case of a Team GB athlete who is a member of:
- The Northern Ireland Volleyball Association in accordance with these rules;
- The English Volleyball Association in accordance with the English Volleyball Association’s anti-doping rules; and
- The Scottish Volleyball Association, in accordance with the Scottish Volleyball Association’s anti-doping rules.
