WADA publishes new Privacy Protection Guidelines

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) is pleased to publish new Privacy Protection Guidelines.

These Guidelines are designed to assist Anti-Doping Organizations in the implementation of the requirements of the revised International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI), which took effect in June this year.

The Guidelines outline the requirements of the ISPPPI and include several new practical tools and templates, namely:

  • A form of record of processing;
  • A confidentiality agreement template;
  • A security breach reporting form; and
  • A risk assessment form

Consistent with the ISPPPI, these Guidelines aim to provide a minimum, common set of standards for the appropriate treatment of personal information processed in the course of anti-doping activities. The Guidelines are a Level III, non-mandatory document.

For any questions or to provide feedback relating to the Guidelines, please direct your e-mails to privacy@wada-ama.org.
