Spain’s AEPSAD to specialise solely in anti-doping

Spain’s agency for health protection in sport (AEPSAD) will dedicate itself solely to anti-doping as part of sports governance reforms in the country. Under amendments to Spain’s anti-doping legislation (Ley Orgánica de lucha contra el dopaje), AEPSAD’s health and sport functions will pass to the Spanish sports council (CSD), and AEPSAD will be renamed as the Spanish commission for anti-doping in sport (CELAD).

The changes were outlined at a meeting between Alejandro Blanco, President of Spain’s Olympic committee (COE) and José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes, Minister of Culture and Sports. Reforms introduced under changes to the sports law include the creation of an independent anti-doping sanctioning committee (CSA), which will replace Spain’s sports administrative tribunal (TAD). An Athlete Charter, designed to set out the rights of athletes, will also be separately introduced as part of the reforms.
