Michael Cepic, the CEO of NADA Austria, met with Montenegro's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Sports and Youth, Dragoslav Šćekić, key representatives of Montenegro´s sport system and colleagues of the Anti-Doping Commission of Montenegro in Podgorica from April 23-25th 2024 to discuss the cooperation and support of NADA Austria which is backed by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sport.

NADA Austria, the Austrian anti-doping agency dedicated to promoting clean sport and fair play, is a very active part of the international anti-doping community and one of the members of the Central Anti-Doping Organization (CEADO). CEADO member countries have been (and still are) mentoring several former EERADO countries to fulfil the requirements of the World Anti-Doping Code.

After successfully finishing the mentoring program in collaboration with the Greek Anti-Doping Organization (HADA), NADA Austria is sharing knowledge and experience with the colleagues from the Anti-Doping Commission of Montenegro. Michael Cepic, who is also the Chairman of the Board of CEADO, on this collaboration: "By sharing our expertise and resources, we aim to empower our colleagues in Montenegro to effectively tackle the challenges of doping in sports and uphold the principles of fair play and integrity."

NADA Austria´s support aims to enhance the capacity and capabilities of Montenegro's Anti-Doping Commission by providing tailored guidance, expertise, and resources from NADA Austria's experienced professionals. Through a series of collaborative activities, including training sessions, workshops, and strategic consultations, the program seeks to strengthen anti-doping efforts in Montenegro and promote a culture of clean sport among athletes, coaches, and sports administrators.
