WADA Publishes 2017 Monitoring Program Figures

Today, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) publishes the 2017 Monitoring Program figures, which provides data for substances by sport which were not on the 2017 Prohibited List but that were monitored during 2017 in order to detect patterns of misuse in sport; and, potential inclusion on the Prohibited List.

Article 4.5 of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) states that "WADA, in consultation with signatories [of the Code] and governments, shall establish a monitoring program regarding substances which are not on the Prohibited List, but which WADA wishes to monitor in order to detect patterns of misuse in sport. […] WADA shall make available to International Federations and National Anti-Doping Organizations, on at least an annual basis, aggregate statistical information by sport regarding the additional substances."
