International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) President Richard Allcroft has called for compliance from member associations on anti-doping and classification rules to ensure fair and equal competition.
In his monthly letter to the IWRF community, Allcroft also stated that the governing body was working on providing clearer guidelines for what is expected of member associations.
"Compliancy in the areas of anti-doping and classification are key factors," Allcroft wrote.
"This is not only relevant to the IWRF but everyone that participates.
"I know that everyone involved in wheelchair rugby wants to be able to participate in a fair and equal sport.
"We continue to be compliant in these areas and our CEO is looking at the best possible ways to manage these on an ongoing basis.
"The requirements and criteria to be a member of the IWRF has previously not been fully understood and it is our responsibility to ensure that this becomes clearer.
"This is a long-term project and our aim is to ensure that the responsibilities and relevant governance structures required are understood."
Allcroft also stressed that rules set by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) are as important in preventing cheating as those put in place by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
"We also aim to ensure that our members fully understand their responsibilities in terms of how they manage the Paralympic version of our sport," the IWRF President said.
"Being compliant to not just WADA but also to the IPC classification code is a necessity for the sport globally."
Allcroft also wrote of his delight at seeing some nations start to lift restrictions associated with the coronavirus pandemic and highlighted that around 90 per cent of IWRF's active membership have spoken with the governing body on video conferences to remain updated during the crisis.
