CAS Anti-Doping Division ready to operate in 2019

A new CAS Division will start to operate as of January 2019: the permanent CAS Anti-Doping Division (CAS ADD) will manage first-instance (or sole instance) procedures relating to anti-doping matters.

Such matters will be delegated to the CAS ADD by sports organizations signatories to the World Anti-Doping Code. As an independent adjudicatory tribunal, it will ensure a proper separation of powers from the Independent Testing Authority (ITA) and other testing and prosecutorial bodies.

Mr John Coates, ICAS President, commented,  “The establishment of the CAS Anti-Doping Division is a major step in the continuing evolution of CAS.

The recommendation came about at the 2017 and 2018 Olympic summit. The costs of the sole arbitrator procedures will be borne by the Olympic Movement for up to four cases per Olympic IF per annum or are free of charge in the case of three person panels.

In addition, CAS has announced the members of The International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS), for the next four-year term.
