WADA Confirms AIBA in Compliance With Anti-Doping Code

Lausanne, Switzerland:  Following the review of the International Boxing Association’s Corrective Action Repot (CAR), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) concluded that all non-conformities based on the CAR have been addressed appropriately by AIBA.

With a new leadership in place, AIBA has been working hard in bringing positive change and further improvements to its anti-doping system. After outsourcing the management of its anti-doping programme, AIBA is pleased to confirm that it will join the Independent Testing Authority as soon as it is up and running, with an anticipated date of June 2018.

Tom Virgets, AIBA Executive Director said: “Being in compliance with the World Anti-Doping marks a big achievement for AIBA and shows its commitment to move our organisation forward. We believe this is just the first step and we will continue our talks with WADA as we working together in the fight for clean sport.”

AIBA is currently making strong efforts to work with WADA in order to find the best solutions for its Anti-Doping programme in anticipation of the upcoming AIBA Men’s World Championships in Russia. Proposals and discussions are already being made to ensure a secure and functional Anti-Doping system is in place during the Championships. Furthermore, additional options and alternatives are currently being secured should Russia not be WADA compliant come next year.

In addition, the support of its new partners, the Global Association of International Sports Federations’ (GAISF) and Doping-Free Sport Unit (DFSU), AIBA is currently establishing a new anti-doping educational programme dedicated to ensuring that all AIBA member federations and athletes understand the applicable rules and regulations.
