WADA - Compliance Annual Report 2021

13 May 2022

Compliance Annual Report 2021 / World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). - Montreal : WADA, 2022


The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published its 2021 Code Compliance Annual Report.

One of WADA’s primary roles as the global regulatory body for anti-doping is to monitor effective implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) and its related International Standards (Standards) by over 350 Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs); such as, National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs), International Federations (IFs) and Major Event Organizations (MEOs).

In particular, the purpose of the Report is to:

  • Clearly outline the achievements and challenges of WADA’s Code Compliance Monitoring Program, measuring objectives against key performance indicators through quantitative and qualitative analysis;
  • Detail the interpretation and implications of the findings, trends and lessons learned over time for Code Signatory Organizations, enhancing their compliance maturity as defined in the Compliance Strategy; and
  • Identify opportunities for continual improvement, forming the foundation for the following year’s Compliance Annual Plan. This cycle is repeated annually as WADA seeks to develop compliance maturity through improvement of its own compliance activities and the global anti-doping system.

Some of the key findings of the Report include the following:

  • The unique combination of reopening compliance procedures, the backlog of cases previously frozen due to the pandemic and the requirement for all Signatories to have anti-doping rules in line with the 2021 Code, led to an annual record number of 53 compliance procedures and five cases of non-compliance in 2021.
  • The high volume of compliance cases and the pattern of Signatories submitting updates late in the compliance process created some resource challenges for WADA.
  • No Signatory challenged its assertion of non-compliance to CAS in 2021, suggesting that WADA, the CRC and the Executive Committee implemented the International Standard for Code Compliance by Signatories (ISCCS) correctly. 
  • While Testing was the anti-doping program area that generated the most non-conformities, both Testing and Results Management findings from compliance audits reduced from the previous year, suggesting that the new framework of the International Standard for Results Management (ISRM) and the focus on providing significant resources to Signatories in this area had a positive effect.
  • The areas of Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) and Education saw an increase in non-conformities. For Education, it can be attributed to an increase of mandatory requirements in this area following the introduction of the new International Standard for Education (ISE) in January 2021. For TUEs, this area will be monitored in 2022.
  • Similar to previous years, NADOs generated more non-conformities than IFs and took longer to implement corrective actions due to the more complex nature of their anti-doping programs.

World Athletics Russia Taskforce Report to the Council Meeting - 30 November 2022

30 Nov 2022

Russia Taskforce Report to Council Meeting of 30 November 2022 / Rune Andersen. - Monaco : World Athletics, 2022



World Athletics’ Russia Taskforce expects to be in a position to make a final recommendation to the World Athletics Council on the reinstatement of the Russian Federation (RusAF) at the next Council Meeting in March 2023, provided RusAF continues to make progress in reforming its culture, Taskforce Chair Rune Andersen told the Council.

However he acknowledged that RusAF’s progress on its reinstatement plan would have no bearing on any Council decision on RusAF’s status arising from the war in Ukraine.

In presenting his regular report to the Council, Andersen said that the RusAF leadership team had “embedded a new culture of good governance and zero tolerance for doping throughout the organisation” under Acting President Irina Privalova.

He noted that RusAF is reporting historic anti-doping rule violations uncovered in the Moscow Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), is delivering anti-doping education for 13,000 young athletes, has developed a test distribution plan that includes more than 2000 domestic tests of Russian athletes per year (most out of competition), and is taking other initiatives, including fining government-funded athletes for any single whereabouts violations.

But Andersen said that widespread and sustainable cultural change would likely take many years to embed and would proceed at different paces in different parts of the system. He expressed concern around the decision of the RUSADA disciplinary commission not to publish its findings in the case of the ice-skater Kamily Valieva.

He said the close monitoring and oversight of RusAF’s operations would not end when its suspension from membership of World Athletics was lifted, but this function would be taken over by the Athletics Integrity Unit, which would enforce a detailed set of Post-Reinstatement Conditions, more stringent than those currently imposed on “Category A” federations (those regarded as most at risk of major doping issues).

These conditions would be finalised with the AIU over the coming months and would be presented to the Council for approval before the Taskforce made its final recommendation on reinstatement.

The Taskforce would also recommend that, to prevent backsliding or interference, any material breach of the Post-Reinstatement Conditions should trigger a Council proposal to Congress to expel RusAF permanently from membership of World Athletics.

UKAD 2022 UKAD vs Jonathan Magrin

25 Oct 2022

In August 2022 United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Jonathan Magrin after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substances Aandrosterone, Etiocholanolone, Testosterone and its adiols.

Following notification and charge the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by UKAD. Because the Athlete gave a timely admission of the anti-doping rule violation he received a 1 year reduction from UKAD.

Therefore on 25 October 2022 UKAD decides to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting backdated on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 5 August 2022.

UKAD 2022 UKAD vs Douglas Steele

19 Oct 2022

In May 2022 United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD) has reported an anti-doping rule violation against the rugby player Douglas Steele after his sample tested positive for the prohibited substances Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone and 19-norandrosterone (Nandrolone).

Following notification and charge the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by UKAD. Because the Athlete gave a timely admission of the anti-doping rule violation he received a 1 year reduction from UKAD.

Therefore on 19 October 2022 UKAD decides to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting backdated on the date of the provisional suspension, i.e. on 6 May 2022.

UKAD 2022 UKAD vs Jack Arnfield

25 Oct 2022

In March 2021 United Kingdom Anti-Doping was informed that prior in 2018 criminal charges had been filed agains the boxer Jack Arnfield for possession of Cannabis with intent to supply.

Previously the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) had suspended the Athlete's boxing licence in April 2018 because of the criminal proceedings. Thereupon un May 2018 the Athlete pleaded guilty and in November 2018 the Athlete received a 12 month prison sentence, which ended in November 2019.

Hereafter in Janauary 2020 the Athlete received a new professional boxing licence from the BBBofC. Following an interview in January 2022 UKAD reported in April 2022 anti-doping rule violations against the Athlete for possession and trafficking of Cannabis.

After notification the Athlete gave a prompt admission, waived his right for a hearing, accepted a provisional suspension and the sanction proposed by UKAD.

UKAD considers that in this case there were mitigating circumstances and that there had been delays in the proceedings not attributed to the Athlete. Further UKAD considers that the principle of lex mitior is applicable retroactively because the 2021 WADA Anti-Doping Code allows a 1 year reduction based on the Athlete's early admission and acceptance of sanction.

Therefore on 25 October 2022 UKAD decides to impose a 3 year period of ineligibility on the Athlete, starting backdated on the date of the BBBofC provisional suspension, i.e. on 15 April 2018.
