The resource was designed by the ITA to support all National Olympic Committees taking part in the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 with the Anti-Doping Education of their athletes and athlete support personnel ahead of the games.
The Prohibited List is one of the most important anti-doping documents that athletes and athlete support personnel need to be aware of, and to understand. But what is it, and how is it best navigated? And how can Therapeutic Use Exemptions grant permission to use a medication on the Prohibited List?
The International Testing Agency (ITA) has been granted observer status with the monitoring group of the Anti-Doping Convention of the Council of Europe. The convention lays down binding rules on the 47 member states of the Council of Europe and 5 other states (Australia, Belarus, Canada, Morocco, and Tunisia) with a view to harmonise anti-doping regulations and to promote the important role of sport in moral and physical education as well as in international understanding.
The International Testing Agency (ITA) reports that it has issued a decision to sanction former doctor of the Thai Amateur Weightlifting Association, Ning Liu to a lifetime period of ineligibility for anti-doping rule violations (ADRVs) of administration and complicity.
The International Testing Agency (ITA) is set to manage yet another independent and expert-led anti-doping program for a major event, after completing its missions for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020 and the upcoming Olympic Winter Games in Beijing in 2022. The International World Games Association (IWGA) has entered a collaboration with the ITA for its next major event, The World Games 2022, to be held in July in Birmingham, Alabama (USA).
The ITA had filed an application to be granted observer status earlier this year, and it was unanimously confirmed by the parties to the Anti-Doping Convention in July 2021. The Monitoring Group of the Convention surveys its application, examines any necessary modifications, holds consultations with any necessary stakeholders, recommends the appropriate measures to keep relevant organisations and the public informed about the activities undertaken within its framework and makes any proposal to improve its effectiveness. The Group also approves the list of pharmacological classes of doping agents and doping methods and the criteria for the accreditation of laboratories.

This month we will address the wider topic of integrity in sport with a focus on competition manipulation.
Betting, match-fixing, sharing inside information and doping in sport are all forms of cheating, running contrary to the idea of a clean and fair field of play. We will examine each of these areas with our expert panel and an athlete guest. We will also look at how personal and sport values affect decision-making and how moments of vulnerability can lead to taking poor decisions. In turn, we will discuss how this can lead to personal, social and economic consequences.
Join us for this interactive session where we challenge you to learn more about yourself and the values that are most important to you and your fellow athletes and colleagues in sport.
We are very pleased to deliver these webinars in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
