Tackling doping has always been crucial to the integrity of sport, but has become increasingly sophisticated as athletes adopt methods that are harder to detect. Anti-doping authorities have developed new methods to detect new forms of doping, but must also comply with legislation safeguarding the rights of the athlete. This full-day briefing offers expert guidance on striking the balance between strict enforcement of anti-doping regulations and consideration of athlete rights.

Tackling Doping in Sport 2010 will examine all new developments in anti-doping in detail, including the use of intelligence in the fight against doping; the use of biological passport programmes; the operation of illicit (recreational) drug programmes alongside the World Anti-Doping Code; the 'Whereabouts' requirements for athletes; blood doping in sport, and more.
