Anti-Doping Update January 23, 2013
The deadline for the final consultation phases for Code Review Process and International Standards Review Process is March 1, 2013. If you have any suggestions for any amendments to strengthen the Code and the International Standards, please feel free to contact the ITU Anti-doping department by February 1, 2013.
According to WADA, “The Code Review Process was launched on November 28, 2011 and the 1st Consultation Phase - during which WADA received 91 official submissions comprising 1,366 individual comments - was closed on March 15, 2012. The 2nd Consultation Phase ran from June 1 - October 10, 2012 and generated 109 submissions and 1,357 individual comments.
Pursuant to the Review Process, WADA has published a ‘clean’ version and a ‘redlined’ version of the revised Code draft 2.0 on its website, as well as all submissions that had publication approval from their authors.
The ongoing 3rd Consultation Phase of the Code Review started on December 3, 2012 and runs in conjunction with the 2nd Consultation Phase of the International Standards, which are designed to bring harmonization to areas of anti-doping.
Final drafts of the Code and International Standards will be approved by the WADA Foundation Board at the World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg, November 12-15, 2013. The revised Code and International Standards will come into force on January 1, 2015.
