As you may know, WADA
is currently working, via its Code Implementation Support Program (CISP)
, to ensure that all Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) are well aware of the upcoming changes to the World Anti-Doping Program and are provided with the necessary guidance and resources to prepare accordingly for the advent of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code (2021 Code). We hope that this work is progressing well for your organization.
We are writing you today to draw your attention to the attached document
that outlines a number of changes to the 2021 Code and the International Standards impacting delegation of doping control activities and the use of WADA
’s Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS). You may already have identified these changes; however, we wish to highlight them and offer guidance towards how you might implement them.
understands that the changes described in this letter may have significant impact on the activities of a number of Signatory ADOs depending upon the nature of their relationship with service providers, sample collection agencies, and member federations.
Please rest assured that we are available to assist you with your transition to the 2021 World Anti-Doping Program; and, would encourage you to contact your relevant WADA
contact with any specific questions you may have.
Thank you for your continued commitment to doping-free sport.
