Provisional Suspensions In Force

A Provisional Suspension is when an Athlete or other Person is suspended temporarily from participating in any competition or activity in Athletics prior to a final decision at a hearing conducted under the IAAF Anti-Doping Rules or the Integrity Code of Conduct.

In this section of the site, we list the Provisional Suspensions currently in force. Some of these cases remain under investigation, while others are the subject of a notice of charge and so will also appear on the list of Pending First Instance cases.

In doping cases, a Provisional Suspension is mandatory under the IAAF Anti-Doping Rules following an adverse analytical finding for any non-specified substance on the Prohibited List.  

A Provisional Suspension may be imposed in other doping cases depending on the nature and circumstances of the case in question.

A Provisional Suspension imposed in a non-doping case does not in any way abrogate the presumption of innocence and it is not an early determination of guilt. Rather, it is an order made on a precautionary basis to safeguard the interests of the sport.
