WADA developed the CISP to help Code Signatories prepare for implementation of the 2021 Code and International Standards (Standards) that come into effect on 1 January 2021.

In addition to the CISP resources that are already available on WADA’s Anti-Doping eLearning platform (ADeL), including ‘pre-recorded’ webinars, on a monthly basis, WADA will also hold ‘live’ webinars, hosted by WADA personnel and external experts, to further support Code/Standard implementation efforts for targeted audiences and/or regions.

The Agency will also hold ‘live’ webinars in place of some of the sessions that would have otherwise been delivered during the Agency’s Annual Symposium, which was due to be held in March 2020 but was cancelled due to COVID-19. This includes the webinar referenced above on the Athletes’ Anti-Doping Rights Act; and, will include in particular another one that updates stakeholders regarding the redevelopment of the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS).

To register for any or all of the above webinars, please simply click on the Registration Links provided.

With the exception of the current month, going forward, every mid-month WADA will communicate its live webinar schedule for the following month, prompting stakeholders to register and participate.
