Revisions to World Anti-Doping Code, International Standards, Come into Force January 1, 2009

Revisions to the World Anti-Doping Code and its related International Standards for Testing, Laboratories and Therapeutic Use Exemptions, as well as the 2009 Prohibited List and the new International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information come into force on January 1, 2009.

These amended anti-doping rules will help further strengthen anti-doping programs worldwide, including by providing for an increase of sanctions in doping cases involving aggravating circumstances in all sports.
