Indonesia is waiting for the compliant status from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) after the Indonesian Anti-Doping Agency (LADI) completed the 2022 Test Distribution Plan.

Vice-Chairman of LADI dr. Rheza Maulana said LADI and other stakeholders worked hard to complete all requirements needed to get the compliant status, including the new statute and TDP for 2022.

"Thank God, the Japan Anti-Doping Agency (JADA) has given an acceptance for LADI's TDP. We have worked very hard for two months, and we made the TDP according to new WADA regulations," said Rheza on Tuesday.

He added that JADA also gave the nod to LADI to execute the Test Distribution Plan.

"JADA also asked us to be removed from LADI's account. Recently, JADA assisted us and monitored all steps taken throughout the process. It means its work has finished," Rheza said.

With JADA's approval, Indonesia is waiting for an announcement from WADA that the country has met all requirements for the compliant status.

WADA announced the non-compliant status for Indonesia on Oct. 7, 2021, after LADI failed to meet WADA Code. The signatory country can't fly its national flag during the international competition organized by WADA's signatories during the sanction as part of the consequences.
