WADA 2016 - Shaping the Future for Clean Athletes WADA Media Symposium Olivier Niggli, Incoming Director General 20 June 2016, London, United Kingdom Who we are WADA is the international, independent, organization that promotes, coordinates and monitors the global anti-doping system Headquartered in Montreal, we employ 80 people of 35+ nationalities; and, have four regional offices in Lausanne, Montevideo, Cape Town and Tokyo Funded equally by the Sports Movement and governments of the World A non-profit organization, we operate on a budget of US$30 million

Who we are (Cont.) WADA is the developer and custodian of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) As of 2016, the Code had been adopted by 678 anti-doping organizations (ADOs) or Signatories As of 2016, 182 (or 98% of) Governments had ratified the UNESCO International Convention Against Doping in Sport formally committing to align their domestic policies with the Code

/3 Our History 1998: Sport Movement faces crisis in the aftermath of the Festina cycling affair 1999: First World Conference on Doping in Sport is held 1999: WADA is formed 2003:

The World Anti-Doping Code, and its International Standards, are accepted at the Second World Conference on Doping in Sport in Copenhagen 2004: The Code, and its International Standards, come into force 2009 and 2015: After extensive stakeholder consultation, revised Codes come into effect in January 2009 and 2015. Name of presentation / 4 Our Governance Structure Our 38-member Foundation Board is WADAs supreme decision-making body Equal representation from the Olympic Movement and Government

It delegates the management of WADA to the Executive Committee The 12-member Executive Committee is WADAs ultimate policy-making body Equal representation from the Olympic Movement and Government WADA's Presidency a volunteer position alternates between the Olympic Movement and Government There are numerous advisory Committees that provide guidance for the Agencys programs Name of presentation / 5 How we Partner WADA collaborates with its global stakeholder network to: Protect an athletes right to clean sport

and thus promote health, fairness and equality; and Ensure harmonized, coordinated and effective programs with respect to detection, deterrence and prevention [IOC= International Olympic Committee; IPC= International Paralympic Committee; IF= International Federation; NOC= National Olympic Committee; NPC= National Paralympic Committee; NF= National Federation; NADO= National Anti-Doping Organization; RADO= Regional Anti-Doping Organization; CAS= Court of Arbitration for Sport] NOT A WADA CODE BUT THE WORLDS ANTI-DOPING CODE World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards 2015 Code and Standards in Practice

2014 was a year of ADOs fine-tuning their rules, with WADA guiding signatories and providing assistance New Code and Standards took effect 1 January 2015 2015 was the first year of practice Importance of universally harmonized anti-doping rules to provide equal protection to clean athletes worldwide

/9 Code Highlights Stronger 4-year Sanctions Smarter Testing - TDSSA Investigations Rules that Cover Support Personnel Flexibility (e.g. Unintentional Doping) / 10 WADA UNDERSTANDS THE HIGH EXPECTATIONS THE CODE DEMANDS OF SIGNATORIES. WE HELP THEM REACH THE REQUIRED STANDARDS

Monitoring Compliance The Codes Principles New Compliance Monitoring Program under 2015 Code Code compliance is monitored by WADA Each Signatory shall report to WADA on its compliance Process to evaluate compliance and corrective actions / 12 The Different Steps of the Compliance Process I. Code Acceptance

II. Implementation of the Code in the internal legal system III. Implementation of a compliant program in the mandatory areas: - Education - TUE - Testing and Investigations - Results Management / 13 The New Compliance Monitoring Program Legal Legal Standards

WADAs Statutes: No representation in WADAs Executive Committee No representation in WADAs Foundation Board No representation in WADAs Standing Committees WADAs Policy: No participation in WADAs Independent Observer missions No participation in WADAs Outreach Programs Possibility to suspend direct or indirect funding to non-compliant signatories as far

as the development of specific activities or the participation to specific programs is concerned Other consequences: The non-compliant Signatory cannot implement a program (in mandatory areas such as testing, investigations, TUEs, education and results management). Cost recuperation / 16 OUR ACTIVITIES Anti-Doping Coordination and Development As Code Signatories, Anti-Doping Organisations (ADOs) are responsible for initiating, adopting, implementing and enforcing any part of the doping control

process within their authority. In addition to WADA, this includes: National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs), Regional Anti-Doping Organizations (RADOs), International Federations (IFs), the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and Other Major Event Organizations (MEOs) that conduct testing WADA objective is to facilitate and promote partnerships between stakeholders to improve coordination and development

/ 18 Regional Anti-Doping Organizations (RADOs) Since their creation in 2004, RADOs have played a vital role in reaching areas previously untouched by anti-doping programs 16 RADOs worldwide covering 126 countries RADO program will continue to be enhanced as we enter new chapter of anti-doping Quality testing and mandatory values-based education are essential two pillars of RADO anti-doping programs RADO program has put the world into world anti-doping.

Athlete Outreach WADAs Athlete Outreach Program has the goal of raising awareness of, and promoting WADA and clean sport at Major Events (MEs) around the world. WADA recruits experts from NADOs, IFs and other organisations to engage athletes and their entourage from a branded booth equipped with interactive activities. Following the ME, the experts are encouraged to adopt and deliver the Outreach Model in their own organizations for which WADA provides expertise, tools and the templates required. / 21 Athlete Committee WADAs Athlete Committee represents the views and rights of

athletes worldwide, while providing insight and oversight into athletes roles and responsibilities as they relate to anti-doping. The 18-person Committee, which is geographically, sport and gender representative, meets twice a year The Committee has a strong voice internationally and helps WADA advance its activities as the global voice of clean athletes The Committee members are engaged with athlete representative bodies providing a sounding board for athlete views globally. / 22 Education WADA believes that a long-term solution to preventing doping is through effective, valuesbased education programs that foster antidoping behaviors and create a strong antidoping culture Value-based education is mandatory for all Signatories The Agency offers many, free, turnkey tools

to implement anti-doping education in sport and schools Science and Medical WADAs responsibilities in the science and medical fields include: Accreditation of anti-doping laboratories Scientific Research the Prohibited List The Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs)

Addressing specific scientific and medical issues pertaining to the identification and detection of doping substances and practices / 24 Prohibited List The Prohibited List, which is one of the International Standards, is updated annually on 1 January There is a year-long open, consultation process It is robust yet flexible WADA List Committee responds to new information and can adapt list when needed (e.g. Xenon / Argon in 2014) It is available on mobile devices and smart phones

It is currently available in five languages Opportunities in Research Seeking partners in scientific research Budgets for research available for anti-doping National, regional and international research Coordination and liaison through WADA Publishing and sharing of information Special IOC/Government Research Fund Recent research topics: ABP Pharmacological Studies on doping substances / methods Methods in analytical chemistry / 26

WADA-Accredited Laboratories With improved testing programs, WADA will continue to strengthen the harmonization of standards across all accredited laboratories 34 WADA-accredited laboratories worldwide Criteria in International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) Laboratory contacts can be found on WADAs website Currently suspended Laboratories: Beijing Bloemfontein Lisbon

Madrid Moscow Advancing the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) Increased use of the ABP by Signatories is encouraged by WADA as part of more effective anti-doping programs Over 44 ADOs have implemented the haematological module

WADA monitors its use and effectiveness, and seeks ways to refine and improve the ABP Since its introduction, the ABP has already led to over 100 Anti-Doping Rule Violations thats 100 fewer cheats on the field of play. Therapeutic Use Exemptions Therapeutic-Use Exemptions (TUEs) are one of the International Standards. Providing guidance to ADOs on all TUE-related matters Continuous expert-led refinement and revision of TUE Physician Guidelines (TPGs) Regular monitoring of TUEs in ADAMS according to

TPG principles and red flag criteria Conducting TUE case reviews and providing support to the WADA TUEC in appeals, as necessary / 29 Investigations 2015 World Anti-Doping Code gave WADA the power to initiate its own investigations a power which it used immediately to establish the Independent Commission and most recently with the McLaren Investigation Forging links with Law Enforcement (INTERPOL)

Launch of first WADA Independent Commission Report in 2015 Appointed Gnter Younger as Director of Intelligence and Investigations / 30 Independent Commission Outcomes 9 November 2015 - Moscow laboratory was suspended 18 November 2015 RUSADA was declared non-compliant

Senior staff from both RUSADA and the laboratory resigned ARAF suspended by IAAF March 2016 Acceptance by Moscow laboratory of its revocation April 2016 revocation approved by WADA Executive Committee

/ 31 Independent Commission Outcomes Interim testing organised by UKAD but paid by RUSADA Independent expert included in RUSADA Board Independent experts working with RUSADA in rebuilding the organisation

Re-accreditation of laboratory starting immediately, in particular to allow for blood testing On 11 May, the lab was granted approval by the Executive Committee, restricted to blood analysis, in support of the ABP / 32 McLaren Investigation Allegations relating to 2014 Sochi Olympics published by CBS 60 Minutes and New York Times on 8 and 12 May

WADA outlined its investigative approach on 17 May Appointed Independent Person Richard McLaren Initial meeting in Los Angeles in May 2016 Investigation in progress / 33

Further Investigations - Challenges Funding Concrete Evidence Intelligence gathering vs investigations More effective outlets to denounce doping Better protection for whistleblowers

Managing expectations / 34 RIO 2016 AND BEYOND Rio 2016 Anti-Doping Program Rio Laboratory significant turnaround since accreditation was revoked in 2013: 24/7 testing service over three shifts State of the art equipment Capacity of the laboratory lab can analyze over 300 samples per day during Olympics WADA IOC task Force Ensuring progress of Rio 2016 OC & ABCD anti-doping programs

Enhance the quality and effectiveness of ADO programs (including through new robust, independent WADA Code compliance program) Further develop values-based education programs Ensuring the athletes of tomorrow do not venture down the path of doping Increase use of intelligence and investigations functions government introduction of laws and legislation needed. Explore additional partnerships along the lines of those with INTERPOL, WCO and pharmaceutical/biotech industries E.g. WADA partnership with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer (early 2015) / 38 How can we progress further in 2016? Expand Athlete Biological Passports full potential Increase capacity of RADOs and minimize regional differences Further advance global coordination through ADAMS Ensure successful practice of Code and International Standards

Build on NADO-NADO partnerships progress E.g. Turkey receiving support from Norway & WADA; Kenya assisted by China, Norway & WADA Enhance collaboration between NADOs and IFs Seek more funding from governments worldwide / 39 Thank you!
