World Anti-Doping Agency publishes final version of 2021 World Anti-Doping Code

World Anti-Doping Agency publishes final version of 2021 World Anti-Doping Code

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published its final version of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards which will come into force on 1st January 2021.

The 2021 Code was originally published last year after it received approval from the WADA Foundation Board and Executive Committee, with WADA now saying that “limited changes” have been made since so that this is now the final version. The Code is available in both French and English.

The 2021 Code was first made public at the World Conference on Doping in Sport held in Katowice in Poland last November and WADA has stressed that these limited changes “affect in any way the sense, meaning or interpretation of the versions approved in Katowice.” The changes instead relate to minor inconsistencies in grammar or style throughout the document.

The 2021 Code Implementation Support Program has been launched which is designed to assist Code signatories in their preparation in advance of the Code coming into force in 2021. Signatories must ensure that they fully comply, so all practices and rules are in accordance with the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards.

You can read the made changes here. And access the 2021 Code here.
