The Code applies to all Participants (defined within) in the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Movement, and the Center’s authority related to the Movement derives from federal law. The Code was first introduced March 3, 2017 and is revised periodically. The most recent version became effective April 1, 2022, and can be found HERE.
