Tajikistan NOC adopts WADA’s anti-doping rules
The National Olympic Committee of Tajikistan has adopted the anti-doping rules of WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency.
The issue was taken up at a meeting of the Executive Committee of the Tajikistan NOC last week, where it was noted that many countries had their own anti-doping organisations. As Tajikistan does not have one presently, it was decided that the Tajikistan Olympic Committee will temporarily fulfill such obligations.
Tajikistan is a signatory to the International Convention against Doping in Sport and the Olympic Charter. As a result, the Tajikistan NOC complies with the Olympic Charter, the World Anti-Doping Code, the decisions of the International Olympic Committee and WADA.
Based on this, the Tajikistan NOC from next year is obliged to examine at least five high-level athletes each year and conduct training activities to prevent doping violations. It was also noted that the national sports federations are also obliged to develop and approve anti-doping rules within the federation in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code and Anti-Doping Rules of the NOC.
