Published in the Yearbook of International Sports Arbitration, Rigozzi / Duval (eds.), 2018 Asser Press
Both WADA and the CAS are foundations under Swiss private law and have their registered seat is in Lausanne, Switzerland. In addition to WADA and CAS, the majority of international sports federations are equally based in Switzerland. Although the adoption of the WADC in 2003 brought about a harmonization of the different anti-doping regulations and the creation of an international regime for anti-doping rule violations, Swiss law continues to play a major role in the adjudication of doping-related procedures before the CAS.
