Friday, 20 January 2023 By Gong Xiaoyan, Liu Jiahe, Chen Dandan

In recent years, China's anti-doping legislation has made significant developments and has formed an anti-doping legal system based on the Sports Law of the People's Republic of China[1] (the Sports Law), supported by a series of administrative regulations and departmental rules, including:

  • the Anti-Doping Regulations issued by the State Council[2],
  • the Anti-Doping Rules[3], and
  • the Measures for Anti-Doping Administration[4] issued by the General Administration of Sport of China,

using the amendments to the Criminal Law of the People's Republic of China[5] as a means of tackling doping crimes. Adding a new Anti-Doping chapter to the revised Sports Law, which will come into force soon, further highlights China's determination to fight doping.

This article introduces recent developments in China's anti-doping legislation from a structural perspective of China's current anti-doping legal system.
