We would like to inform you about THE NEW DATE for the webinar on the new categorization rule, which will be held on the 5th March 2024 at 1:00 PM CET.

(The webinar initially scheduled for 20th February has therefore been postponed!)

Date: 5th March 2024
Time: 1:00 PM CET


This webinar aims to clarify the functioning of the newly implemented categorization rule. It will outline the specific obligations and requirements applicable to the Member Federations as set out in Articles 18.9 and 18.10 of the 2024 IWF Anti-doping Rules.
The webinar will be hosted by the International Testing Agency (ITA).
While we understand there may be questions regarding the categorization of Member Federations into different groups (A, B, or C), we would like to specify that this session will primarily focus on explaining the rule itself.

The focus of the webinar is specifically dedicated to clarifying the operational requirements for the Member Federations within each category. 
Kindly be aware that the session is not intended for discussing the categorization of the Member Federations itself.

All participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the practical implementation of the requirements via the chat feature. This will provide an opportunity for attendees to clarify any point of confusion regarding the new rule.

We anticipate an informative session, and we encourage all Member Federations to join us for this important webinar!



The webinar will be delivered in English with simultaneous translation to three additional languages – Arabic (العربية), Spanish (español) and Russian (русский).
