European Court of Human Rights issues its decision on WADA’s whereabouts rules

In Fédération nationale des associations et des syndicats sportifs (FNASS) and Others v. France (the ‘Whereabouts ruling’), the European Court of Human Rights (‘the Court’) held unanimously on 18 January 2018 that WADA’s whereabouts rules that require athletes to provide details on their location to facilitate doping tests do not violate Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which provides for the right to private and family life. In this article, Jaimy Vanenburg, Attorney-at-Law at Holla Advocaten, provides her opinion on the ruling and what it means for the fight against doping in sport.
