The Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee concludes a cooperation agreement with U.E.F.A.

In order to intensify their efforts in the fight against doping, the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee and U.E.F.A have concluded a cooperation agreement.



In accordance with the provisions of Articles 20.5.3 and 20.6.8 of the World Anti-Doping Code, and wishing to join their joint efforts to intensify cooperation in the fight against doping, the Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee, represented by its President, Mr. Philippe Orengo, and UEFA, represented by Marc Vouillamoz, Head of the UEFA Anti-Doping and Medical Committee and by Mr. Giorgio Marchetti, Director of Competitions, concluded a cooperation agreement on September 16, 2016.

This agreement allows the two partners to coordinate their anti-doping programs and more specifically doping tests to which the players of the clubs participating in the 2016-17 Champions League are subject and who are on the lists of football players registered for this competition. It includes the conduct of unannounced doping controls out of competitions, the sharing of information and intelligence deemed useful in the planning of doping tests, and the implementation of players’ biological passports in the second edition of the UEFA Football Law Program.

The Monegasque Anti-Doping Committee is pleased to be among the 25 national anti-doping organizations in Europe that have so far concluded such an agreement.
