WADA launches second consultation phase on International Standard for Results Management

On 12 December 2017, 4 June 2018 and 10 December 2018 respectively, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) launched the three phases of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code Review Process, which also involves review of the International Standards (Standards).

Today, the Agency launches a second review phase for the International Standard for Results Management (ISRM). The ISRM, which is a new Standard, was first presented to WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) and Foundation Board (Board) in November 2018 and was circulated for a first stakeholder consultation phase from 10 December 2018 to 4 March 2019. Following its review at the May 2019 ExCo and Board meetings, the Standard is now ready for a second stakeholder consultation phase for which the Agency is soliciting feedback by 8 July 2019.

The whole review process will culminate with approval at WADA’s next World Conference on Doping in Sport, which is to be held in Katowice, Poland in November 2019; after which, the revised 2021 Code and Standards will take effect on 1 January 2021.

As indicated above, we would ask you to propose recommendations no later than 8 July 2019 via WADAConnect, the Agency’s online consultation platform. Easy to use, WADAConnect will prompt you to create a user account and input your comments regarding aspects of the ISRM that are of particular interest to you. For more information related to WADAConnect, please refer to the simple user guide.
Stakeholders are asked, to the extent possible, to draw on practical experiences and propose recommendations that would benefit the fight for clean sport worldwide. In addition, stakeholders are kindly asked to be as specific and clear as possible when making submissions, i.e. by proposing text to replace the existing text.
Please note that, in the interest of transparency, WADA will publish all comments on its website at the end of the consultation phase; and that, unless otherwise notified, stakeholder credentials (i.e. username, organization and organization type) will be posted along with the comments.
