The 3rd Consultation Phase commenced on December 3, 2012 when a call for comments was sent to all stakeholders. Feedback was received over a three month period, concluding March 1 2013.

As part of the Code Review Process, WADA met with stakeholders frequently during the first half of 2013. They examined the comments received, drafted preliminary versions and presented Draft Version 3.0, along with the 2nd Revised Draft of the International Standards (Version 2.0), for approval to the WADA Executive Committee in May 2013.

Adoption of the amended World Anti-Doping Code and International Standards is scheduled to take place at the WADA Foundation Board Meeting during the World Conference on Doping in Sport, to be hosted in Johannesburg, South Africa, 12-15 November 2013.
