Meeting of the Bureau of the 6th session of the Conference of Parties to the International Convention against Doping in Sport
The first meeting of the Bureau of the 6th session of the Conference of Parties to the International Convention against Doping in Sport will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from 4 to 5 March 2018.
The first meeting of the COP6 Bureau aims at ensuring the follow-up to COP6 resolutions as well as addressing matters of relevance to the Convention.
Agenda items include issues regarding non-compliance, values-based education, the development of operational guidelines and of a framework of consequences for non-compliance with the Convention, as well as an action plan for the implementation of the recommendations mentioned in the evaluation of the International Convention against Doping in Sport.
The International Convention against Doping in Sport, adopted in October 2005, helps to ensure the effectiveness of the World Anti-Doping Code (the Code). As the Code is a non-government document that applies only to members of sports organizations, the Convention provides the legal framework under which governments can address specific areas of the doping problem that are outside the domain of the sports movement. As such, the Convention helps to formalize global anti-doping rules, policies and guidelines in order to provide an honest and equitable playing environment for all athletes.
