New FIDE Anti-Doping Regulations

In a subject dear to my heart, FIDE have announced their revised anti-doping regulations. They've been re-written to bring the FIDE code into line with the 2009 WADA Anti-Doping code. I've had a quick skim but nothing really jumped off the page to me, although I do wonder how seriously they will manage out of competition testing (10 players rated above 2650 will be subjected to this).
Of course with all these things the real issue isn't how the players follow the regulations, but how FIDE itself follow the regulations. So far their track record hasn't been that good.
