WADA removes Mauritius National Anti-Doping Organization from non-compliance list

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announces that, following a circular vote of its Executive Committee (ExCo), the Agency removed on 24 October 2019 the Anti-Doping Unit of the Mauritius Ministry of Youth and Sports – the National Anti-Doping Organization of Mauritius – from the list of Signatories that are non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code).

The Anti-Doping Unit of the Mauritius Ministry of Youth and Sports was declared non-compliant by WADA’s ExCo at its meeting of 16 November 2017 due to non-compliant anti-doping legislation that was being used to enforce the Code. Since then, it has successfully implemented the corrective measures required to address its non-compliance, namely the adoption of legislation and related anti-doping regulations that are in line with the Code.
