New rules concerning Anabolic steroids
Recently new rules concerning Anabolic Steroids were introduced. Anabolic Steroids have been totally forbidden in Sweden for a long time, but starting 2010 a positive test of usage of anabolic steroids will result in a competing ban for two years. In 2012 a positive test will result in a lifelong competing ban. Due to this Trottex have updated the terms of auction by giving both sellers and buyers increased obligations. The seller will have an increased duty of information and the buyer will have an increased duty of examination. For the buyer to be able to perform his increased duties he has to be able to take a hair sample for analysis and receive an answer of the test within the time it’s possible to claim liability for hidden defects. Due to this Trottex has increased the number of days within which a complaint has to be made. It’s now possible to make a complaint for hidden defects due to usage of anabolic steroids within 60 days after the auction. Complaints due to other hidden defects has to med made within 30 days after the auction as before. If a complaint is made, Trottex has the right to withhold payment in full at the buyer’s request until the dispute is settled. Test kits are available in the secretariat. Please contact Trottex for more information. Trottex will collect the samples taken and send them for analysis. Estimated cost for the analysis is approximately 4 000 SEK. The analysis is expected to be performed within 8 weeks.
