Expertise and collective force

anti-doping programmes

The fight against doping is becoming more and more complex. New doping methods emerge. New scientific data become available and new means to effectively combat doping are developed accordingly.

The ITA unites existing expertise and the collective force of its partners to offer state-of-the-art and tailor-made anti-doping programmes. We want to offer our partners the ability to focus exclusively on growing their sport and developing their events while the ITA focuses solely on fighting doping.

The ITA is a not-for-profit organisation that combines expertise, experience and independence to deliver high quality anti-doping programmes in compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code.
