The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is the independent international body responsible for harmonising anti-doping policies in all sports and all countries. The World Anti-Doping Code is the core document that harmonises anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport organisations around the world. The Code is supplemented by eight International Standards, including the Prohibited List that is updated at least annually.

As a Signatory of the World Anti-Doping Code, the ITTF is responsible for implementing an effective and Code-compliant anti-doping program for the sport of table tennis.

The ITTF also has its own set of anti-doping rules and it is important that those involved in the sport are familiar with them. These rules can be found here.

The ITTF has delegated the management of its table tennis clean sport activities to the International Testing Agency (ITA), an independent organisation that manages anti-doping programs on behalf of International Federations and Major Event Organisers.

WADA, the ITTF, the ITA and the National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) coordinate all anti-doping efforts within the sport of table tennis.
