The WADA Executive Committee has approved a more athlete-friendly 2021 Prohibited List as well as paving the way for further governance reforms.

The WADA Executive Committee virtually held its third meeting of the year on 14th and 15th September where it covered a wide range of issues including Covid-19, the current situation with the Russian Anti-Doping Agency and the Rodchenkov Act which if passed in the US would criminalise international doping fraud conspiracies and give American authorities unprecedented control over international sport.

The 2021 Prohibited List and other International Standards will be published before 1st October 2020 and come into force on 1st January 2021, but had undergone a redesign following input from the WADA Athlete Committee so that it is more user friendly and easier to navigate for athletes.

WADA governance reforms were approved in 2018 and will now be implemented over the next few months, these include changes to the term time that Executive Committee members can serve for, increased athlete representation in National Anti-Doping organisations and Development of a Code of Ethics and formation of an Independent Ethics Board.
