New Zealand is working closely with the World Anti-Doping Agency (a global partnership between governments and the sports movement) to protect the international anti-doping system from corruption. In 2018, New Zealand took over the Oceania seat on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Executive Committee from Australia for one year. New Zealand also remains on the WADA Foundation Board (WADA’s supreme decision-making body). New Zealand also promotes its policy on Sports Match-Fixing and Related Corruption, and encourages the adoption of good governance standards by sports bodies. In 2019, Sport NZ completed a Sport Integrity Review to ensure both government and the sector are responding appropriately. New Zealand will monitor the International Sports Integrity Partnership and may consider joining it in the future."
