IFF Central Board meeting 4/2014
Place: Decision per capsulam over email
§ 1. Approval of the new IFF Anti-Doping Regulations 2015
As the IFF CB was informed in the last CB meeting in Madrid, Spain, Ms. Merita Bruun has been working on the new Anti-Doping Rules, which are in-line with the WADA Code stepping into effect from the 1st of January 2015.
Based on the information we have received from WADA, in order to secure that the IFF Anti-Doping Rules are compliant with the WADA requirements, the stakeholders have to send in their new rules for approval, but they need to first have been approved by the IFF CB in this case.
In order to have the rules approved and ready for implementation towards our members, as the last amendments were made last week, based on input from WADA, Ms. Merita Bruun is proposing that the CB would approve the new Anti-Doping Rules starting from the 1st of January 2015, replacing the present IFF Anti-Doping Regulation in the Per Capsulam meeting.
The IFF Office will then seek the approval from WADA and continue the process accordingly, based on WADA recommendations and prepare the guidelines for our member associations.
