Swiss Foundation Supervisory Authority Decision relating to PPF Claims

Following a review into the allegations made by the Professional Players Federation (PPF) on November 5, 2013, the Swiss Foundation Supervisory Authority (the Registrar) has found the PPF’s complaint to be unfounded.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has been found not responsible of any wrongdoing in relation to its Code review process that led to the decision to remove clause 10.4.3 (regarding substances of abuse) from Version 4.0 of the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code.

The PPF had asked the Registrar to review WADA’s decision to remove clause 10.4.3 and had claimed that WADA had not followed its governance rules in the process adopted to review the World Anti-Doping Code.

As the body which monitors the governance of Swiss Private Foundations, the Swiss Foundation Supervisory Authority reviewed the PPF’s claims and found no substance in the allegations made.
