Introducing The Clean Protocol™

The Clean Protocol™ is a system to support clean athletes and to promote social change toward clean sport.  It is the highest standard for athletes complying with the rules of their sport.

The Clean Protocol™ is a system designed by enthusiastic and like minded athletes, sports professionals and relevant experts to enable clean athletes to obtain and independent certification of their compliance with the rules.
