Working Groups

At its meeting in November 2016 in Glasgow, Scotland, the WADA Foundation Board approved a series of recommendations that would equip the Agency to be fit for the future. 

To continue strengthening the anti-doping system, the Foundation Board agreed to form three separate Working Groups to study: WADA’s laboratory accreditation monitoring system; independent testing; and governance matters. While the work of the first two groups is now complete, we outline below the mandate and composition of the working group on governance matters.

Working Group on WADA Governance Matters

To ensure the independence of the anti-doping system from sports organizations and national governments, the WADA Foundation Board approved the creation of a working group with stakeholder representation from the governments, the sport movement, National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs), athletes and other experts. The working group is studying strengthening WADA’s governance structure and will report to the Foundation Board when their work is complete (anticipated for November 2018).
