About Us

Drug Free Sport NZ (DFSNZ) is a crown entity established under the New Zealand Sports and Drug Agency Act 1994.  This was replaced by the Sports Anti-Doping Act 2006. 

The act charges DFSNZ with the responsibility to implement and apply the World Anti-Doping Code in New Zealand. DFSNZ is funded by the New Zealand Government and is accountable to the Minister for Sport and Recreation and the New Zealand Government. 

The organisation is overseen by a board of up to five members who are appointed by the Governor General of New Zealand on recommendation by the Minister for Sport and Recreation. DFSNZ has a staff of 13 full-time and part-time employees plus independent contractors who work in the field collecting samples and/or educating athletes and support personnel.
