June 30/10 17:19 pm - Canadian Anti-Doping Rules Up for Review
Posted by Editoress on 06/30/10
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is revising the Canadian anti-doping rules, and invites members of the sport community to review and comment on the draft, released today. The 2009 Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) requires rules changes to remain current with the World Anti-Doping Code. Your feedback is vital to the process.
This version change will not require sport organizations to re-adopt the CADP. It will come into effect without any action on your part, in two phases:
• Sections 2-9 of the CADP - October 1, 2010
• Section 1: General Principles - January 1, 2011
Noteworthy changes include:
• Parts of the Canadian Policy Against Doping in Sport that will not be carried forward in 2011 were incorporated into the CADP (Rules 1.0-1.3).
• The Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) process was split, to define the athletes that require a TUE in advance of competition and the athletes who may meet anti-doping requirements by being followed by a licensed medical practitioner.
• The World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) Athlete Biological Passport Operating Guidelines (Rule 6.1) were incorporated, including four new annexes for collection, transport, analytical and results management requirements (Annex 6H-J, 7A).
• Whereabouts submission dates were clarified to synchronize with ADAMS submission deadlines of January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 (Rule 6.98).
The CCES encourages you to provide feedback by September 7, 2010 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
