Prosecution Authority

The members of the Prosecution Authority are appointed by the Board of Directors in Anti-Doping Norway, and shall possess legal, medical and pharmaceutical competence.

The Prosecution Committee is independent from the administration, and shall review a potential anti-doping rule violation case put forward by Anti-Doping Norway’s administration.

After reviewing the case, the Prosecution Committee decides whether to dismiss the case or bring it forward to NIF’s independent Adjudication Committee. In particular cases, for instance if the athlete admits the facts, the Prosecution Committee may decide on a sentence with the athlete’s consent.
