WADA Seeks Comment on Draft Revision of the International Standard for Testing

WADA is pleased to provide the recently revised draft International Standard for Testing (IST), posted on the WADA Web site. The purpose of the IST is to plan for effective testing and to maintain the integrity and identity of samples, from notifying the athlete to transporting samples for analysis as well as handling whereabouts information and missed tests. Following an extensive consultation process prior to the World Anti-Doping Conference in Madrid, a revised version of the standard (V 3.0, October 2007) is now available for review online. We encourage your continued comment on the draft standard during this consultation period which will conclude in May 2008, at which time the Standard will be tabled for final approval by the WADA Executive Committee. This version will be further developed in the New Year based on the feedback you are able to provide as well as the continued direct consultation with all WADA stakeholders. You will also find versions of the standard which have been redlined to the 2.0 version (2007) and the active 2003 version for your reference. Additionally, an explanatory note on the development of the standard has been included to assist in the comprehension of the draft Standard.
