Antidoping Switzerland achieved all its annual objectives in 2014.

Furthermore, Antidoping Switzerland carried out a new record number of 4085 controls. In 2014, Antidoping Switzerland completely revised its website and extended doping prevention measures were implemented with several stakeholders. While the structures and activities of Antidoping Switzerland were consolidated, the 2014 financial statement closed with deficit for the third consecutive year.

2008

The Antidoping Switzerland foundation began its activities on 1st July 2008.
