Chisinau, 27 July /MOLDPRES/ - The government today approved a draft law which provides for the revision and improvement of the mechanism of work of the National Anti-Doping Agency (ANAD), through the establishment of new components necessary in the prevention and combating of doping in sport nationally, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.

The document’s goal is to set up an Appeal Commission at the State Chancellery, in order to consider and settle the ANAD decisions or the ones of the hearing commission. This will allow the files of the sportspeople or of the latter’s assisting staff, suspected of infringement of the anti-doping regulations, to be examined and settled in Moldova for the first time ever. The process through which the period of suspension of sportspeople will be removed, reduced or frozen will be regulated too.

The draft is meant to adjust the national normative framework in the field of prevention and combating the doping in sport to the provisions of the new World Anti-Doping Code, which entered into force in 2021.   

The changes are absolutely needed for the training of the national teams for the World and European Championships, the Krakow-Malopolska European Games 2023 and the Paris Olympic Games, due in 2024. If the anti-doping national legislation is not adjusted to the standards of the new Code, the sportsmen of Moldova will not be able to participate in the international competitions under the country’s colours.
