WADA Executive Committee to discuss updated recommendation on RUSADA
 
MEDIA RELEASE

WADA’S EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE TO DISCUSS UPDATED RECOMMENDATION FROM INDEPENDENT COMPLIANCE REVIEW COMMITTEE IN RELATION TO RUSADA ROADMAP TO COMPLIANCE

Montreal, 14 September 2018 – Today, the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) independent Compliance Review Committee (CRC) delivered a recommendation to go to WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) for the reinstatement of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) when the ExCo meets next on 20 September.

During its usual pre-ExCo conference call, held on 13 September, the CRC reviewed at length a letter from the Russian Ministry of Sport to WADA and was satisfied that this letter sufficiently acknowledged the issues identified in Russia, therefore fulfilling the first of the two outstanding criteria of RUSADA’s Roadmap to Compliance. For the second outstanding criterion, the CRC accepted that the new commitment to provide access to the data and samples in the Moscow laboratory to WADA via an independent expert would be sufficient to justify reinstatement, provided that the ExCo imposes a clear timeline for such access.

The ExCo will fully discuss this recommendation during its 20 September meeting and its decisions will be communicated publicly.
 
While WADA does not usually communicate CRC recommendations prior to their consideration by the ExCo, the Agency decided to do so in this case given the level of interest surrounding the matter and the amount of speculation.
 
It is important to note that, since RUSADA was declared non-compliant by WADA in November 2015, the Agency, the Russian authorities and partners have been working very hard to rebuild a credible, and sustainable, anti-doping program in Russia; and that, there have been significant developments across their anti-doping system.
