OUR ANTI-DOPING RULES VIOLATION PROCESS

Below is a summary of our Anti-Doping Rules Violation (ADRV) process – it is for informational purposes only. For more information, see Chapter D: IBU Anti-Doping Rules of the Integrity Code.

1

The Biathlon Integrity Unit receives a report of an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) or other information which indicates a possible Anti-Doping Rules Violation (ADRV)

2

The Biathlon Integrity Unit reviews the report; checks it against any relevant documents e.g. Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE); and collects information from ADAMS

3

The Biathlon Integrity Unit sends a Notification Letter to the Athlete (or other Person) with the charge which may include a provisional suspension; and informs the IBU Secretary General

4

The Athlete (or other Person) is given the opportunity to answer the Notification Letter. They may request the opening of the B-sample, challenge the provisional suspension and either accept the charge or request a hearing

5

The Biathlon Integrity Unit will retain an External Legal Counsel to discuss whether to commence formal proceedings by submitting the Charge Letter with supporting evidence to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Anti-Doping Division

6

The CAS Anti-Doping Division conducts the adjudication process, which may include a hearing, and announces a decision, which may be subject to appeal to the CAS Appeals Division

7

The Biathlon Integrity Unit immediately notifies all Persons with a right to appeal and provides them with a case file containing all relevant information
