Dear Colleagues,

On 12 December 2017 [2], 4 June 2018 [3] and 10 December 2018 [4] respectively, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) launched the three phases of the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code Review Process [5] (2021 Code Review Process), which also involves review of the International Standards (Standards).

Today, the Agency is pleased to publish:

I. THE THIRD DRAFT OF THE 2021 WORLD ANTI-DOPING CODE (CODE)
II. THE SECOND DRAFTS OF THE INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS _(where applicable)_
III. THE REVISED ANTI-DOPING CHARTER OF ATHLETE RIGHTS (CHARTER)

These updated versions of the Code, Standards and Charter follow careful consideration of all recommendations and feedback received during the three phases of the 2021 Code Review Process, which came to an end on 4 March 2019. They were submitted to WADA’s Executive Committee (ExCo) and Foundation Board (Board) at their respective meetings on 15 and 16 May 2019.

The whole review process will culminate with approval of the final drafts at WADA’s next World Conference on Doping in Sport, which is to be held in Katowice, Poland in November 2019; after which, the revised 2021 Code and Standards will take effect on 1 January 2021.

  [Note: The second draft of the Charter is also available in French [48] and Spanish [49].]

WADA would like to thank all stakeholders for their feedback during the 2021 Code Review Process. The high quality of stakeholder feedback that was collected during the Review was instrumental to ensuring that the Code and Standards be further strengthened in protection of clean sport.

The Agency also wishes to advise stakeholders that while the official consultation phases are now over – with the exception of the ISRM (which is currently undergoing a second consultation phase) and the ISL (which will undergo further revision and stakeholder consultation as explained above) – the drafting teams will continue to accept comments and/or feedback from stakeholders to ensure that the 2021 Code and Standards, which will be further discussed by WADA’s ExCo at its last meeting before the World Conference (on 23 September in Tokyo) are as robust and comprehensive as possible.

Best regards,

World Anti-Doping Agency
