GENEVA, March 2. /TASS/. The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is going to conclude anti-doping agreements with all countries whose teams will play in the European Cup finals in France before the opening due on June 10, the UEFA said on its website.
At the beginning of the 2015-2016 season the UEFA declared it had launched an anti-doping program, encompassing the introduction of the steroidal module of the athletes’ World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) biological passport with the aim of improving the identification of the use of steroids and strengthening the rules related to the whereabouts of the team and players and the long-term storage of test samples.
UEFA has signed agreements with 21 national anti-doping agencies. The list included Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Britain.
Since early February, control over doping abuse in Russian sports has been exercised by RUSADA only in cooperation with the British anti-doping agency (UKAD).
The agreement on cooperation between the UKAD and the Russian agency, which is currently limited in its rights following a decision of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), was signed on February 1. The agreement will be in force until RUSADA is restored in its rights returning its former status.
