World Conference

Within a short period of its WADA activities have achieved a lot. First, the sharply aggravate the problem of doping in sport in the eyes of world public opinion and the media, to bring to its consideration of the structure of the UN, Council of Europe UNESCO, etc. Second, significantly enhance the role of the Agency and with the support of the IOC leadership to turn it into a structure standing in terms of anti-doping work, not only over the NOCs, IFs majority, but also, to some least over the IOC, certain provisions of national laws in different countries. Third, actively promote its own independent anti-doping policies and activities, mainly to ensure it is supported by the IOC, NOCs, IFs, governments and international organizations. Fourth, sharply intensified practice, which has been reduced mainly to expand the list of prohibited substances and methods, increased The amount of testing, primarily during the training process, and the tightening of sanctions for doping. And finally, fifth, to develop, discuss and adopt at the 2003 World Conference on Doping in Sport Code which since 2004 has predetermine throughout the anti-doping system.

Unfortunately, the active work of WADA was developed on the basis of imperfect Anti-Doping Code of the Olympic movement, adopted in 1999 city, and other anti-doping rules, which led to serious problems and contradictions which had justified the creation WADA. Therefore, excessive speed, one-sidedness and superficiality, could not but lead WADA, along with certain positive moments (better organization of doping control, coordination of various international and national organizations, etc.) to serious problems, shortcomings and contradictions. Naturally, the expansion of WADA practice of testing athletes on the basis of the provisions is seriously flawed Anti-Doping Code of the Olympic movement, aggravated by too much finality and expeditious implementation is not always based innovations, could not but cause bewilderment and well-founded criticism from athletes, coaches, doctors, heads of various sports organizations.
