Jersey Strengthens Regime for Combatting Doping in Sport

Mar 01, 2023


• Jersey’s framework for combatting doping in sport has been strengthened with the establishment of the Jersey National Compliance Platform (NCP)

• The NCP will strengthen collaboration between organisations involved in anti-doping

• Jersey sports clubs can expect greater engagement to ensure they are aware of anti-doping procedures

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.“
