So it is better that you promise or sign a contract that you are willing to cooperate for examination.
Even though you are a complete troll I will answer to you.
In all sports punishment for refusing doping tests is equal or even more strict
than punishment for being caught.
Moral midgets and creatures like your beloved Ivanov are making chess sad.
So far chess was pure sport in the sense that ppl were trusted not to be cheating and measures to prevent it have not been advised.
If behavior like his becomes more frequent we'll also have doping like tests in chess.
And I'm completely for it. It would mean the following:
1) All players are routinely scanned/checked like in airports meaning even if they are clean on machine screening there is discretion right of a referee to request full body search including body holes as it is done on US airports.
2) There is also a discretion right to scan some players more often if their results impose higher probability of cheating or if the event is more important (like title/candidate matches).
3) If a player is positive
(device for cheating is exposed) or he/she refuses to be tested
he/she should get multiple-years if not career ban from playing any chess event under FIDE.
