Dur­ing a govern­ment meet­ing, of­fi­cials ap­proved Health­care Min­istry’s de­vel­oped project of rules that pro­vide for form­ing a Dis­ci­plinary Anti-Dop­ing Com­mit­tee and Ther­a­peu­tic Use Ex­cep­tions Com­mit­tee, as well as es­tab­lish terms for both com­mit­tee mem­bers.

«Dis­ci­plinary Anti-Dop­ing Com­mit­tee will re­view vi­o­la­tions of an­ti­dop­ing reg­u­la­tions and make ap­pro­pri­ate de­ci­sions in each case. This com­mit­tee will con­sist of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Lat­vian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, the Lat­vian Olympic Com­mit­tee, the Lat­vian Sports Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil, the Lat­vian Olympic League and the Lat­vian Acad­emy of Sports Ed­u­ca­tion – two from each in­sti­tu­tion. Rules state the or­der in which these or­ga­ni­za­tions pro­vide spe­cial­ists,» Health­care Min­istry ex­plains.

Ther­a­peu­tic Use Ex­cep­tions Com­mit­tee will con­sist of at least three doc­tors from Lat­vian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion.

The min­istry adds that can­di­dates from all afore­men­tioned in­sti­tu­tions are to be ap­proved in their posts for terms that do not ex­ceed four years with an op­tion to be re-elected. This means the to­tal num­ber of years per mem­ber can reach eight years. «This will en­sure lower cor­rup­tion risk, bet­ter in­de­pen­dence and ob­jec­tiv­ity in de­ci­sion-mak­ing pro­cesses. To pre­vent a con­flict of in­ter­ests, peo­ple part of the Ap­peal Com­mis­sion will not be al­lowed to be elected mem­bers of ei­ther Dis­ci­plinary Anti-Dop­ing Com­mit­tee or Ther­a­peu­tic Use Ex­cep­tions Com­mit­tee,» Health­care Min­istry ex­plains.
