Jersey strengthens regime for combatting doping in sport

01 March 2023

Jersey’s sports clubs can expect greater engagement and support to ensure that they are aware of the anti-doping procedures they need to follow.

The Government of Jersey has established the Jersey National Compliance Platform (NCP) to formulate the Island’s anti-doping policy, and to implement it through collaboration with all the parties involved in combatting doping in sport.

The NCP will be responsible for providing evidence that Jersey is taking action to comply with UNESCO’s International Convention Against Doping in Sport, and will work with Jersey Sport and other stakeholders to ensure that training is delivered to sporting clubs and associations.

The Assistant Minister with responsibility for sport, Deputy Lucy Stephenson, said: “In order to meet international standards we have to ensure that those who are involved in sport at every level understand Jersey’s anti-doping policy, and know how to implement it in practice. 

“We are responsible for both complying with international standards, and demonstrating that we are complying with them. The NCP will enable us to do both."

“Jersey has been subject to UNESCO’s International Convention Against Doping In Sport since 2007, but previously we have not been able to demonstrate that we complied with it. The NCP will take responsibility for demonstrating that we are complying with those international standards. It was only established in October of last year but has already made great strides towards ensuring that Jersey’s sporting community are complying.“

About the National Compliance Platform

The Government of Jersey established a National Compliance Platform (NCP) in October 2022, in order to improve and strengthen collaboration between parties involved in antidoping. The NCP has been established to ensure a consolidated approach in the exchange of information and the collection of data related to the UNESCO International Convention against Doping in Sport.

  • To encourage the implementation of an efficient information exchange system that guarantees adequate communication, coordination, cooperation and collaboration among the Members of the National Anti-Doping Platform and stakeholders
  • To promote multidisciplinary and multisectoral approaches that establish joint and consensual work procedures and methodologies among the parties involved, favouring prevention, the Rules of operation of the National Anti-Doping Platform, control, detection, investigation, sanction and/ or criminalization, where appropriate, of certain practices associated with doping in sport
  • To promote the generation and/ or improvement of regulations related to the prevention and fight against doping
