WADA appointed a group of six NADOs to the Taskforce â€“ namely, United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD), which acted as secretariat, United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Anti-Doping Denmark (ADD), Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA), the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Agency (ASADA), and the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS) â€“ with WADA providing oversight and access to information.
Now we know which countries are in the Inner Circle. When UKAD is in charge of the taskforce, it's hard to think there is much seriousity. Three of the 6 are English speaking (also South Africa). ASADA is a league leader in TUE percentage, USA is also pretty high. About the only positive is having Denmark instead of Norway.
Page 53 (Appendix 13) lists the "Independent" observers. No surprise, again dominated by Western countries: UK (Chair), Australia, UK, Cuba/Italy, USA, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Colombia, Canada. With Russia excluded, probably they didn't have much to fiddle-faddle about.
