WADA confirms Standing Committees for 2019

The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) Foundation Board confirmed WADA’s Standing Committees for 2019 at the Board’s meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan on 15 November 2018. The Committees play a key advisory role in policy and priority development for WADA.

In accordance with WADA’s Statutes concerning Standing Committee composition and rotation, on an annual basis, the Agency seeks nominations from its stakeholders for candidates to fill vacancies. 

It should be noted that at WADA’s November Board meeting, the Board approved various recommendations made by the WADA Governance Working Group on how the Agency’s governance structure and processes could be enhanced, including as it relates to Standing Committees. Accordingly, WADA Management will now undertake a revision of the WADA Statutes to reflect where changes are required. Following approval by the Foundation Board of the revised Statutes, various changes to the way in which the Standing Committees are governed will then be applied.
