Agence Française de Lutte contre le Dopage
Agence Française de Lutte contre le Dopage (AFLD), often referred to in English as the French Anti-Doping Agency, although this is not a direct translation of the name, is an independent public authority formed in 2006 and charged with ensuring that participants in sports in France do not violate rules regarding doping.
A breakdown in the relationship between AFLD and the International Cycling Union (UCI) in relation to testing procedures in the 2009 Tour de France lead to the severance of the role which gave AFLD their highest profile cases. In 2010, a threatened reduction in the grant from the French government, which had decided against increasing a tax on television rights for sports that was to fund it, placed the future of AFLD in doubt.
