Welcome to this session hub dedicated to the FEI Equine Anti-Doping Rules.
This year, the FEI Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulation will undergo a full review in line with the introduction of the new WADA Code on 1 January 2021. And, while some changes to the EADCMR will be mandatory to ensure that the FEI remains WADA compliant, the FEI has scope in some areas to adapt the rules to reflect the specificities of equestrian sport.
The objective of this session at the FEI Sports Forum is to gauge stakeholder feedback on the direction and scope of some of the proposed changes that arise in the context of the FEI’s implementation of the EADCMR and to identify potential changes that could be proposed to the FEI General Assembly in 2020.
It is important to clarify that this Sports Forum session does not replace the Rules Revision process for the EADCMR which will take place as usual and as per the dates set out below. This is a consultation exercise to provide the FEI with the community’s outlook on some of the key themes that will be covered in the EADCMR review.
We highly recommend and encourage all National Federations and stakeholders to review the information covered in this session hub and have their say. Consultation is a key part of the FEI’s governance process, and this is an additional opportunity to make our Rules Revision process even more robust and ensure the proposed rules reflect the community’s needs and expectations.
As you will see, we have broken down the session into distinct themes, and where relevant we have included questions where we are seeking YOUR input.
All these questions have also been collated in the final section “Have Your Say – We Want Your Input”, so please do review these carefully and CONTACT US with YOUR FEEDBACK. You will find all the deadlines and milestones around stakeholder consultation with regards to the review of the EADCMR and the Rules Revision process in the first tab below “An Overview: The FEI Equine Anti-Doping Rules”.
