WADA publishes conclusions of annual audit of Intelligence and Investigations Department

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the ‘conclusions and potential improvements’, which resulted from the Agency’s second annual audit of its independent Intelligence and Investigations (I&I) Department.

In keeping with article 9(a) of WADA’s I&I Policy, on an annual basis, an Independent Supervisor is required to conduct an audit of the I&I Department.

Such audits are intended to ensure that the department’s work continuously and rigorously satisfies best practices, follows the applicable laws and regulations, and protects the rights and privacy of individuals.

The audit was conducted by the Independent Supervisor, Jacques Antenen. Mr. Antenen is currently Commander of the Vaud Cantonal Police in Switzerland. He is a former Investigating Judge of the Canton of Vaud and Special Federal Prosecutor of the Swiss Confederation.

Once a year, the Independent Supervisor is required to submit a written report to WADA’s Director General and Executive Committee (ExCo) and, once approved by the ExCo, the conclusions of the report are to be made public on WADA’s website.
