Sport Resolutions (SR) is a London-based independent, not-for-profit, dispute resolution service for sport operating globally, offering arbitration, mediation, tribunal and expert opinion. SR’s aim is to provide an expert, speedy, cost effective and conflict-free alternative to internal appeals processes and court-based litigation.
SR’s panel of arbitrators and mediators includes nearly 300 members across the globe and consists of esteemed legal minds including barristers and QCs, as well as leading experts in fields such as finance, medicine, safeguarding and sport administration.
SR entered into an agreement with the ITA to operate the Independent Hearing Panel, which is available to determine first instance anti-doping matters for non-Olympic International Federations or any other Anti-Doping Organisations wishing to make use of the tribunal. The agreement has been effective since the new World Anti-Doping Code came into force in January 2021.
