International Standard for the Protection of Privacy Now Online

WADA has now published the International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI), which was approved by the Agency’s Executive Committee at its September 20 meeting.

The purpose of the ISPPPI is to ensure that all relevant parties involved in anti-doping in sport adhere to a set of minimum privacy protections when collecting and using athlete personal information, such as information relating to whereabouts, doping controls and therapeutic use exemptions.

WADA led an extensive consultation process beginning in late 2007 involving key stakeholders, legal experts, international organizations, governments and privacy regulators from several countries, and circulated two draft versions of the ISPPPI for comment.

The ISPPI will go into effect on January 1, 2009.
