The current version of the International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI) went into force on 1 January 2021*.
The purpose of ISPPPI is to ensure that Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) apply appropriate, sufficient and effective privacy protections to the personal information they process when conducting anti-doping programs. This is in recognition of the fact that personal information gathered in the anti-doping context can have an impact on and implicate the privacy rights of persons involved in and associated with organized sport.
The International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI) is supported by the non-mandatory Guidelines for Privacy. These Guidelines aim to better equip Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) in applying appropriate and effective privacy protections, as described in the ISPPPI.
Where the ISPPPI sets forth a minimum of what to do, the Guidelines aim to help ADOs understand how to do it through examples and suggestions. Where possible, the Guidelines show ADOs how they can how to go above and beyond the minimum standard
