All NOCs from The Americas Sign Code

Rune Andersen, WADA’s Director of Standards & Harmonization, made a presentation on the World Anti-Doping Code implementation at the Panamerican Sports Organization (PASO) General Assembly, which took place April 21-23 in San Antonio (USA).

On this occasion, the remaining National Olympic Committes (NOCs) from the Americas who had not signed the Code did so. As of April 27, 185 out of the 202 existing NOCs in the world have accepted the Code.

During the meeting, Rune Andersen answered questions about WADA and the implementation of the Code. Participants also emphasized the importance of education of young athletes in their activities.
