The National Anti Doping Agency of Germany is the key body for clean sports in Germany. NADA Germany was founded in July 2002 and introduced with a festive ceremony in the city of Bonn’s historic town hall Altes Rathaus. On November 21st of the same year, NADA Germany was officially recognised and approved by the relevant supervisory authority for foundations. Ever since, NADA Germany has been striving to realise its foundational goals and stands for fairness and equal opportunities in sports.
As a non-profit foundation by civil law, NADA Germany is an independent body. Since January 2020 its funding is based on the institutional funding by the German state. Today, NADA Germany has become the centre of competence for anti-doping activities in Germany and unites all forces for doping-free sport in a single organisation. NADA Germany’s anti-doping work is based on two pillars. In addition to an effective testing programme, preventive measures and offers are fundamental for the overriding goal of clean performance by athletes.
The ITA is collaborating with NADA Germany on the basis of a Memorandum of Understanding signed in March 2022.
