The World Anti-Doping Agency has opened the process for reviewing its global rules, amid contentious debate over Olympic drug bans.

WADA is inviting all of its members to propose any changes ahead of the revision of the World Anti-Doping Code.

The two-year review process will conclude with adoption of a new code at a doping summit in Johannesburg in November 2013.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport recently nullified the IOC rule barring athletes with a doping suspension of more than six months from competing in the next Olympics.

The IOC says it will seek to get the rule included in the next code.

Last week, the British Olympic Association was deemed "non-compliant" with the code because of its lifetime Olympic ban for drug offenders.
