Since 1 July 2008, the Antidoping Switzerland foundation has been the independent centre of excellence for fighting doping in Switzerland. Antidoping Switzerland receives its funding from the Confederation and from Swiss Olympic. The foundation provides services based on service contracts submitted by Swiss Olympic and the Federal Office of Sports. These service contracts form the basis for funding and define the goals of Antidoping Switzerland.
