logo fimOd sezonu 2016 FIM zdecydował, że alkohol nie będzie zaliczany do substancji dopingowych, ale jazda pod wpływem alkoholowa oczywiście jest zakazana. W związku z tym wprowadzono w Kodeksie Medycznym aneks opisujący procedurę przeprowadzenia badania i wynikające z niej konsekwencje (pełny tekst poniżej). W skrócie, badanie alkoholowe będzie przeprowadzone przez osoby wyznaczone i przeszkolone przez FIM, za pomocą urządzeń dostarczonych i serwisowanych przez FIM.

Co najmniej 3 zawodników w każdych zawodach będzie przechodziło przez badania polegające na teście zawartości alkoholu w wydmuchiwanym powietrzu. Jeżeli w jakimś badaniu zostanie przekroczony dopuszczalny poziom 0,1 g/l,  zawodnik będzie "dmuchał" ponownie po 10 minutach od pierwszej próby, celem uniknięcia błędów wynikających z wpływu pokarmów czy spalin na wynik. Wynik drugiej próby będzie ostateczny i w przypadku przekroczenia dopuszczalnej wartości, na zawodnika zostaną nałożone odpowiednie sankcje.

Appendix V
FIM Alcohol Testing Procedure Riders participating in any FIM World Championship, FIM Prize or International events will be subject to alcohol breath testing at any time in-competition* in accordance with Appendix V of the FIM Medical Code “FIM Alcohol Testing Procedure”. *In-Competition =  the competition** period commencing twelve hours before the rider has passed the technical and/or administrative scrutineering whichever is the earlier, before a competition in which the rider is scheduled to participate until the publication of the results.  **Competition = single sporting event (composed, depending on the discipline, of practice sessions, qualifying practice sessions and race(s), rounds, legs, heats or stages ).
1. Such testing will be undertaken by a licensed FIM Official at the event using an FIM approved testing device and in the presence of an independent witness such as the event CMO or other suitable individual. At certain events, for example, those involving the use of public roads, the police may  undertake such testing.  2. Testing will be undertaken by a licensed FIM Official at the event who is trained in the use of the alcohol testing device. 3. Testing will be performed with no prior notice. 4. Riders will be selected randomly by ballot or at the discretion of the FIM Chief Steward, FIM Jury President, FIM Delegate or FIM Medical Representative. 5. At least a minimum of three riders will be tested at each event. 6. At any time in-competition* alcohol testing may be included as part of a special medical examination at the request of the CMO, Race Director, Clerk of the Course, Medical Director, Jury President, Chief Steward or the FIM Medical Representative in accordance with the FIM Medical Code. 7. Following notification of selection for alcohol testing, the rider must immediately attend the designated location for testing. 8. A refusal to undergo alcohol testing will be regarded for the purpose of the application of sanctions as identical to a test reading above the permitted threshold.  9. Any rider who refuses to submit himself to alcohol testing will be excluded from the event, and the details notified to his FMN and the FIM for further potential sanction in accordance with the FIM Disciplinary Rules and/or relevant Sporting Regulations. 10. Alcohol testing will normally take place in a location that maintains rider confidentiality, is secure with restricted access, and is in a suitable location with adequate facilities such as light and ventilation etc. 11. Each rider will be tested individually and in private. 12. The alcohol testing device will be determined and provided by the FIM. 13. The device will be calibrated immediately prior to use at each event in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. 14. The device will also be subject to periodic independent calibration in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. 15. The alcohol test procedure will take place in the presence of the FIM Jury President or Chief Steward and the event CMO and FIM Medical Representative if present who will act as independent witnesses to the procedure. 16. The testing procedure and use of the device will be explained to the rider immediately prior to the test.
17. The rider will be allowed to select an individual mouthpiece from a selection of at least three individually sealed mouthpieces for their individual use and attach it to the device. 18. The rider will blow steadily into the mouthpiece until the device indicates that an adequate specimen of breath has been obtained. 19. The test result displayed on the device will be shown to the rider and the other officials present and recorded on the test record documentation. 20. This procedure from 19 above will be repeated twice more until a total of three results are obtained and recorded. 21. The time of each test will also be recorded on the documentation 22. The documentation will then be signed by the rider and all the officials present at the test. Any refusal by a rider to sign the documentation will be duly noted and recorded accordingly on the documentation but will not invalidate the result of the test. 23. The results and associated documentation will be given to the FIM Jury President or Chief Steward for reporting at the next event of the International Jury or Race Direction. 24. If any test reading is greater than the permitted threshold of 0.10g/L a further confirmatory test will be performed following a ten minute waiting period from when the initial series of three tests is completed and the result recorded.  25. As part of this confirmatory test the rider will again be asked to select a further mouthpiece from a selection of at least three sealed mouthpieces. (A confirmatory test after a period of 10 minutes in the event of a positive test is to ensure any residual alcohol in the rider’s mouth from food, mouth wash etc. is no longer present in order to limit false positive results).  26. Following such a confirmatory test a further reference test should then be performed on the device in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. 27. If the result of the confirmatory test is above the permitted threshold the rider will be immediately disqualified from further participation in the event and referred for consideration of further sanction in accordance with the FIM disciplinary rules. 28. If the result of the confirmatory test is below the permitted threshold no further action will be taken.
