WADA Congratulates UK for Independent Anti-Doping Organization

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) applauds the initiative of the UK Department for Culture, Media & Sport and UK Sport to establish an independent national anti-doping organization.

“WADA congratulates Gerry Sutcliffe and UK Sport for this very positive and decisive action,” said WADA Director General David Howman. “The new model is based on the evolution of anti-doping that requires a strong independent anti-doping organization able to coordinate and collaborate with other entities such as law enforcement authorities to ensure an effective fight against doping in sport. WADA looks forward to supporting and working with the new agency.”
