MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) has completed its joint work with the British Anti-Doping Agency (UKAD), which began in February 2016, RUSADA Director General Yury Ganus told TASS on Wednesday.
“We have finished our work with UKAD, and the reason behind it was the decision of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s [WADA] Executive Board to return us in September the status of compliance,” Ganus said in an interview with TASS.
“Our department on TUE permits issuance worked on every application since last year’s October simultaneously with the UKAD, which directly dealt with the issuance of Therapeutic Use Exempt permissions,” Ganus said. “We have studied in full all technologies regarding this procedure.”
“The transition of our TUE issuance department to its independent work was smooth an effective,” the RUSDA chief added.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) granted RUSADA on September 20 the status of compliance with the Code and beginning in October the Russian agency’s special committee is reviewing all submitted TUE applications.
