WADA Compliance Review Committee Update

The Compliance Review Committee (CRC), an independent WADA Standing Committee, held its latest meeting on 21 August 2018 in London, United Kingdom, to discuss a number of issues related to compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code). In particular, these included:

  • An assessment of the compliance situation of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), in particular in relation to the implementation of RUSADA’s “Roadmap to compliance”, which will be considered by WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) at its next meeting on 20 September.
  • An assessment of the compliance situation of the International Boxing Association (AIBA), which will also be considered by WADA’s ExCo in September
  • The implementation of the International Standard for Code Compliance by Signatories (ISCCS), which came into force on 1 April 2018, and an update on the ongoing consultation process related to its revision, which is running in parallel with the revision of the Code and the other International Standards.
  • An update on the implementation by International Federations and National Anti-Doping Organizations of the corrective actions identified through the Code Compliance Questionnaire (CCQ) and the compliance audit program, as well as WADA’s considerable support for Signatories in their efforts to achieve full compliance.
  • A review of WADA’s long-term strategy in relation to compliance monitoring activities.
  • Discussions regarding a number of Code signatories that the CRC may recommend for non-compliance at the September ExCo unless they correct their outstanding non-conformities by then. The CRC will hold a conference call to discuss any updates ahead of the ExCo meeting.

The CRC is responsible for providing independent advice, guidance and recommendations to WADA’s Management and governing bodies on matters relating to Signatories' compliance with their obligations under the Code.
