ARISF and WADA discuss 2015 Code Practice with International Federations at SportAccord Convention

On Thursday, 23 April 2015, ARISF organized together with WADA the second Anti-Doping Coaching/Training Session addressing to all International Federations (IFs) the issues, expectations, implementation and practice of the new 2015 WADA Code. Thanks to the host, Sport Accord, International Federations had the possibility to share updates and anti-doping policies with a special attention to small IFs and small budgets.

The Director of WADA’s European Regional Office and IF Relations, Frédéric Donzé, declared: “Maintaining close relations with all parties plays an essential part in ensuring we are able to effectively protect the clean athletes,” repeating the words of WADA President Sir Craig Reedie at the 2014 SportAccord Convention: “IFs have a central role to play in protecting the integrity of sport, and WADA will continue to provide them support to ensure the full potential of the revised Code is put into practice.”

ARISF President, Dr. Raffaele Chiulli, who first envisioned this session and cooperation with WADA as a benefit for ARISF members declared: “I am honoured and happy to welcome the speakers of today and to provide all IFs the possibility to be here and be part of the new WADA Code practice focusing on a variety of areas including education, doping risk assessment, smart testing and the new Technical Document for Sport Specific Analysis (TDSSA)”.

ARISF Secretary General, Riccardo Fraccari, closed the session pointing out “education and addressing clean sports to the youth is a priority for IFs and ARISF feels proud to offer its contribution”.
