The Executive Committee and Foundation Board of the World Anti-Doping Agency have endorsed the current system of athlete whereabouts requirement, rejected by the Indian cricket Board, at its meeting over the weekend in Montreal.

Results of a survey circulated earlier this year by WADA to anti-doping organisations showed that Anti-Doping Code signatories supported the principle of whereabouts and reported successful implementation of the rules, a WADA media release said.

The survey showed there existed some misunderstanding from a number of anti-doping organisations as to the purpose of whereabouts requirements and WADA chief John Fahey called for user-friendly guidelines to help international federations and National Anti Doping Organisations implement them.
