  • A Committee Internal Ballot (CIB) was opened on 26 August 2019 regarding World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Application for A-liaison status with ISO/CASCO. (See attached “ACR Item 51 – ISO-CASCO_N0949_CASCO_Circular_letter_-_CIB_-_WADA_A_Liaison_Application_with_CASCO”)
  • To provide feedback in support/against this application, please email the EUROLAB Secretariat by 13 September 2019.


  • In 2018 ILAC commenced a Secretariate Study to identify and optimize the ILAC structure and ensure ILAC has access to adequate resources to meet and sustain its agreed objectives.

The study is in the final stages and ILAC has provided members with a copy of the Study Proposal (see attached “ACR Item 52 – 2019 08 08 Secretariat Study – Executive Proposal for GA – Ver 2 Clean”) and a copy of the Initial Report (see attached “ACR Item 52 – 2019 03 10 ILAC Secretariat Study – Initial Report Ver 1-4”)

The study will be discussed during the upcoming ILAC General Assembly in Frankfurt 28 and 30 October 2019 and all members are encouraged to review and be prepared to discuss.

Background and take-aways: ILAC is currently managed by NATA through a Deed of Agreement. The Study considered the pros/cons of three options, keeping management by NATA, transitioning to a 3rd party contractor, or to ILAC hiring staff and managing operations themselves. It’s expected that 2 additional staff in addition to what NATA provides would be needed to maintain all services/operations of ILAC. Key take-aways – ILAC needs a well-known figure to act as the Secretary General of ILAC to help facilitate more political and communicative roles. ILAC Secretariats need more support from ILAC to manage committees. ILAC also needs support for finance, communications, and legal functions. Someone independent of the ILAC membership is preferred to avoid conflicts of interest.

  • The ILAC Articles of Association and Bylaws have been revised based on feedback received from members. ILAC is now circulating the revised documents for consideration. The documents will be discussed and a ballot help during the ILAC General Assembly on 30 October 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
