The ISMF promotes True Ski by adopting and implementing the World Anti-Doping (WADA) Program. In parallel, the ISMF is responsible for ensuring that all of its member associations and athletes respect and comply with all relevant International Standards and the principles inherent to the World-Anti Doping Code, including the registered testing pool and the doping violation procedure.

- Promote drug-free competitions in ISMF competitions.
- Develop fair and consistent anti-doping procedures and regulations.
- Assist Member Associations in meeting their obligations to their national sports authorities and comply with relevant national legislation (similar to the fields of contracts, human rights, and data protection).
