WADA notified of RUSADA’s dispute of Agency’s ExCo decision

WADA RECEIVES NOTICE OF RUSADA'S DISPUTE OF AGENCY'S EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE DECISION

logo en2xMontreal, 27 December 2019 – The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) confirms that, today, it received official notice from the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) disputing the unanimous endorsement by WADA's Executive Committee on 9 December of the recommendation made by the independent Compliance Review Committee that RUSADA be declared non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) for a period of four years, with a range of consequences attached.
 
As RUSADA's notice was received within the stipulated 21 days, the matter will be referred to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in accordance with the correct process outlined in the International Standard for Code Compliance by Signatories (ISCCS, Article 10.4.1).
 
As per the ISCCS, WADA will shortly file a formal notice of dispute with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), and the dispute will be resolved by the CAS Ordinary Arbitration Division.
 
As third parties may intervene or apply to intervene as set out in Article 23.5.7 of the Code within 10 days of WADA's filing, WADA will make another public announcement immediately after filing its notice of dispute to CAS.
 
Further to Article 23.5.9 of the Code, any CAS decision in relation to the non-compliance, the proposed consequences and/or the proposed reinstatement conditions will be binding and must be recognized and enforced by all Signatories.
 
WADA President Sir Craig Reedie said: "WADA remains convinced that it made the right decision on 9 December. The proposed consequences are tough on the Russian authorities while robustly protecting the integrity of clean sport around the world. We will defend that decision with the utmost vigor at CAS."
