(nädär`), pseud. of

Gaspard-Félix Tournachon

(gäspär`-fālēks` to͞ornäshôN`), 1820–1910, French pioneer photographer and writer, b. Paris; he adopted the legal trademark of "Nadar" as a young man. A multitalented young bon vivant, with a gift for self-promotion, he began his career as a caricaturist, and wrote for magazines and newspapers. In 1853 he opened a photographic studio that became a meeting place for literary and artistic celebrities; he captured their faces in portraits that combine brilliant composition with psychological insight; his finest were taken mainly from 1854 to 1860. Nadar is best known for his pioneering aerial photographs. Having conceived (1855) the idea of mapmaking and surveying from a balloon, he went aloft for the first time in 1857, quickly installed a darkroom and lab in a balloon gondola, and completed his first aerial photographs c.1858. Nadar also pioneered airmail (using balloons) during the siege of Paris in 1870 and invented the photo-essay, e.g., his photographic series of the Paris catacombs and interviews accompanied by photographs. In his day, however, his prose essays and novels brought him greater fame than his photographs. Much of his work is preserved in the Bibliothèque nationale.

WADA would have no objection in the event that the NADO resolved not to participate in these proceedings.
Not so much by its formal and legal position, but certainly by its position as an ADO under the Code (which defines the roles and obligations of NADOs and International Federations, as we have demonstrated in paragraph 3).
So we can hardly imagine that other NADOs are not facing the same kind of predicaments that we encounter during our work.
Apart from communicating with other NADOs and WADA, which NADOs are obliged to do in case of a positive finding, all NADOs have their own specific circles in which information is exchanged.
NADOs in EU countries can be bodies that are subordinate to a Ministry or acting independently.
Because NADOs are free to decide which athletes will be included in its national registered testing pool the composition of these pools differs widely from country to country.
In nearly all EU countries the relationship between the NADOs, the sport federations and the public authorities has been defined in some way.
Athletes that are only included in the national RTP, fall under the NADO's authority, and can consequently obtain a TUE from their NADO, in accordance with the TUE provisions established by the 2009 Code: "Each National Anti-Doping Organization shall ensure, for all Athletes within its jurisdiction that have not been included in an International Federation Registered Testing Pool, that a process is in place whereby Athletes with documented medical conditions requiring the Use of a Prohibited Substance or a Prohibited Method may request a therapeutic use exemption".
As (i) NADOs are signatories and (ii) athletes who are only included in the NADO's RTP fall under that NADO's authority, there can be no question or confusion about the fact that IFs have to recognize TUEs granted by NADOs to these athletes.
However, in this regard WADA overlooks the fact that the NADO section in article 4.
Desde el verano del 2005 hasta ahora ha seguido entrenando intensamente porque sabe que la preparacion para estos 2 cruces requiere de arduo trabajo con nados en la Laguna del Sol, del Nevado de Toluca; en el Lago Zirahuen, en Michoacan; en Alchichica.
Varios patrocinadores han aportado recursos economicos, en especie, logisticos y de salud para que estos nados esten asegurados y que una atleta de alto rendimiento como Paty Guerra tenga este logro que no se queda a nivel personal, porque trasciende a traves de la Fundacion Patricia Guerra, a Asociaciones de la Sociedad Civil que apoyan con su trabajo diario a grupos vulnerables de nuestra poblacion, asi como demostrar a nivel internacional la valia de fuerza y entereza de los mexicanos y mexicanas.
