At the EU Anti-Doping Conference in Prague on 7 and 8 November 2022 under the Presidency of the Czech Republic, Dr Lars Mortsiefer, Head of the Legal Department and Member of the Executive Board of the National Anti Doping Agency of Germany (NADA Germany), presented the measures in the area of data protection in the anti-doping work in Germany.
The conference served as an exchange on current anti-doping work at EU level. The role of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), the National Anti-Doping Organisations and the state institutions in supporting and protecting clean sport were topics of the conference, as were the intelligence and investigation work and the topic of data protection in anti-doping work from an EU perspective.
Data protection and data security are important rights of athletes and cornerstones of anti-doping work. It is therefore crucial that anti-doping organisations adequately protect the personal data they collect, while complying with the requirements of applicable data protection law and thus maintaining the trust of those involved in organised sport in the long term.
