The November 2016 UIAA Newsletter is now available.

The UIAA Ice Climbing season, supported by The North Face Korea, commences in mid-December with the season opener in Durango, Colorado. Athlete registration opened in early November for the six-event series, to be held in six countries on three continents. The season concludes with the biennial World Championships, to be held in Champagny-en-Vanoise.  The UIAA Anti-Doping Commission continues to be a proactive implementor of all WADA regulations and has recently  enhanced its educational programme for athletes which now includes a mandatory certificate for competition. The international reach of the UIAA Safety Label expands with the construction of new laboratories in China. The Asian winners of the Piolets d’Or award were announced and UIAA member federations from the Asian continent met for the annual UAAA General Assembly in Kathmandu, Nepal.
