Amended anti-doping code to be ready by November


An amended anti-doping code to fight the use of performance enhancing drugs in sport will be adopted in November this year.

The 3rd World Conference on Doping in Sport to be held in Madrid, Spain, from November 15-17 this year is strongly tipped to ratify the amended code which was first approved by World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) in 2003, coming into force from January 1, 2004.

One of the most important tasks assigned to WADA by its constituent members following its creation was the mandate to develop the World Anti-Doping Code, a core document that provided for a framework for all anti-doping policies, rules, and regulations within sports organisations and among public authorities throughout the world. Three years of experience have shown the Code to be an effective tool. However, like any living document, it requires regular review, says a WADA dispatch.

“WADA launched a process of review in mid-2006, on a scale similar to the consultations that led to the Code’s initial adoption. The goal has been to build on experience to fine-tune the Code,” it said, adding that WADA has made several noteworthy advances in global anti-doping campaign.
