JADA visited IADO for three work days to supervise how to handle and anticipate the audit
Jakarta (ANTARA) - The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will conduct an audit on Indonesia Anti-Doping Organization (IADO) next year to ensure compliance to the World Anti-Doping Code, according to IADO's Head Gatot S. Dewa Broto.

The audit would involve the entirety of the regulation, adequacy of the budget from the government, human resources, and all educational activities in every sports branch organization, Broto said in a statement, Sunday

The audit will also encompass the competition testing (ICT) and out of competition testing (OOCT) method and procedure as well as the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS) implementation connected directly with WADA.

Lastly, the audit also includes communication with the WADA-accredited anti-doping laboratory as well as Doping Control Officer (DCO) competency.

As part of the preparation for the audit from WADA, the IADO received supervision from the Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA) last week, Broto noted.

"JADA visited IADO for three work days to supervise how to handle and anticipate the audit," he explained.

"As a consequence, IADO has to work hard to invite all stakeholders to understand more regarding the importance of this anti-doping activity," he added.

To this end, IADO will also hold the National Anti-Doping Forum at Sultan Hotel, here, Wednesday. Representatives from both WADA and the Southeast Asia Regional Anti-Doping Organization (SEARADO) will also attend the event, he noted.

The two international organizations were invited, with the expectations that they can identify, conduct mapping, and provide recommendations on what IADO should do now and in the future, he remarked.

IADO needs suggestions, as Indonesia will be the host of various international events, such as the U-20 FIFA World Cup, FIBA World Cup, and ANOC World Beach Games 2023, he noted through a statement, Sunday.

Moreover, Indonesia will participate in several international events, such as the EA Games XXXII/2023 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Asian Games XIX/2022 in Hangzhou, China.
