The QUARTZ Event Program has neither the vocation nor the competence to replace anti-doping rules but aims to strengthen the medical supervision before, during and after the competition.
The QUARTZ Event program is managed by an Experts Commission that gives an advice to the race direction on the medical condition of participants.
This Experts Commission can go as far as to suggest to the race direction that a participant should be excluded from competition for health reasons before competition (« no start ») or not ranked after the competition for non-compliance with the procedures.
The QUARTZ Event Program is for each participant who agrees to:
The declaration of medical information to the Experts Commission is done through the QUARTZ health space for which each participant has access from the website https://quartzprogram.org . The declared medical information is only accessible by the Experts Commission, the QUARTZ Program Team members as well as to the medical team during an eventual care during the competition.
Within 60 days before the start of the competition and during the competition
Within 7 days before the start of the competition and during competition
Within 24 hours before the start of the competition and during competition
The possible use of these different substances may be identified in the context of the analysis carried out before and/or after the competition or any other means of investigation.
Any unreasonable breach, refusal, or transmission of erroneous information in connection with the QUARTZ Event Program can result in the exclusion of the participant from the competition before the competition or not to be rank after the competition.
