  • January 15th-17thICIC  2020 (Limburg)
    • In 2014, Doping Authority Netherlands organized the International Conference on the implementation of the revised World Anti-Doping Code (ICIC2014). This conference took place two months after the World Conference on Doping in Sport in Johannesburg, and dozens of issues relating to the implementation of the WAD Code 2015 were discussed by 165 attendants in Vaals (Limburg, the Netherlands). ICIC2014 was received very well by the participants, and several stakeholders expressed their interest in the second version of this conference, following the World Conference in Katowice. This made Doping Authority Netherlands decide to organize a follow-up conference: ICIC2020. The implementation of relevant changes in the Code will be the core business. Additionally, the implementation of several new and revised International Standards will be a relevant part of the program. The main target groups of ICIC2020 are NADOs, RADOs, international federations, and athlete representatives.
