International Convention against Doping in Sport
News 1 of 45 Next
The International Convention against Doping in Sport will enter into force on 1 February 2007, now that it has been ratified by 30 States. The Convention was adopted unanimously by UNESCO’s General Conference on 19 October 2005.
The Convention will enter into force after its ratification by Luxembourg on 11 December 2006 and in accordance with paragraph 1 Article 37 of the text, which stipulates that “this Convention shall enter into force on the first day of the month following the expiration of a period of one month after the date of deposit of the thirtieth instrument of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession.” The Convention, the first such international instrument in the area of doping in sport, was ratified by 30 States in record time.

“No other international standard-setting instrument elaborated by UNESCO has been ratified so rapidly,” declared Koïchiro Matsuura, Director-General of UNESCO. “This much awaited Convention will enter into force in little over a month. This is good news for all and a clear signal to youth and the sporting world – both amateur and professional – that we take this question very seriously.
