DC 8.3 Single Hearing Before CAS

Cases asserting anti-doping rule violations against International- or National-Level Athletes may be heard directly at CAS, with no requirement for a prior hearing, with the consent of the Athlete, FINA, WADA, and any other Anti-Doping Organization that would have had a right to appeal a first instance hearing decision to CAS.

[Comment to DC 8.3: Where all of the parties identified in this rule are satisfied that their interests will be adequately protected in a single hearing, there is no need to incur the extra expense of two hearings. An Anti-Doping Organization that wants to participate in the CAS hearing as a party or as an observer may condition its approval of a single hearing on being granted that right.]
