Anti-Doping evaluation visit to Ireland

A team of Council of Europe experts has carried out an evaluation visit in Dublin, Ireland, to assess the country’s anti-doping programme, practices and measures. Held on 5-7 October 2022, the visit aimed at evaluating the implementation by Ireland of the Anti-Doping Convention.

The team met with the stakeholders playing an active role in the fight against doping, such as high-level representatives from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media; Sport Ireland and notably its Anti-Doping Unit; law enforcement authorities; Olympic and Paralympic Federations, and athletes.

Formed by Satu Heikkinen (Finish Sport Ministry, Head of the Evaluation Team), Michał Rynkowski (Polish Anti-Doping Agency, Rapporteur), Farhad Abasov (Azerbaijani Anti-Doping Agency), Gabriela Andreiașu (Romanian Anti-Doping Agency), and Amandine Carton (French Sport Ministry), the team’s composition aims at reflecting the vast geographical and institutional scope of the Convention and its State Parties.

The team will gather the findings, recommendations and good practices identified during the visit in an evaluation report. This report will be adopted by the T-DO in early 2023, and subsequently transmitted to the Irish authorities for the implementation of its recommendations.

Evaluations are part of the Monitoring Group (T-DO)’s mandate. Each year it analyses the anti-doping system of its State Parties through a questionnaire and several of such evaluation visits.
