Working Groups (WGs) are created on an as-needed basis only, and generally with a defined mandate requiring deliverables within a set timeframe.
Although WGs are not considered permanent, they are not exclusively short term. It may be anticipated that some need to run over a number of years.
The following WGs (as at January 2021) are currently in place:
- Governance Review
- Several Scientific Groups (looking at areas such as glucocorticoids, IRMS, EPO, MRPL)
- A number of Athlete Biological Passport Groups (specifically addressing ABP program elements such as Haematological, Steroidal, Steroids in Blood, Endocrine Analytics)
[Note: The Terms of Reference, Contact Persons, and Membership of each Working Group will be posted shortly]
