New Prohibited List for anti-doping valid from Jan 1
Paris: Parties to the International Convention against Doping in Sport have agreed to a unified list of prohibited substances and practices in sport and the 2013 Prohibited List will come into effect on Jan 1, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) announced.
The Prohibited List, which appeared as annex I to the Convention, is based on the very same list developed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) for sports federations, the UNESCO affirmed in a statement on anti-doping Wednesday.
WADA had recently revised its list, and parties followed suit using identical wording, reports Xinhua.
"Once again, governments` and sports federations` prohibited list will be identical," UNESCO proclaimed, commenting the coordination a success in a bid to harmonise and simplify rules designed to restrict and control doping in sport while tolerating therapeutic exceptions.
The 2013 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods is now available and can be found on the official website of WADA.
