Athletics doping scandal: Russia federation accepts IAAF ban
Russia's athletics federation has accepted its ban from international competition without requesting a hearing, the IAAF has confirmed.
An inspection team will monitor Araf as it bids to regain its IAAF membership.
Araf confirmed it will cooperate "fully and actively with the team".
Anti-doping expert Rune Andersen will lead the five-man inspection team that includes four-times Olympic silver medallist Frankie Fredericks.
The IAAF, the sport's governing body, is holding a meeting in Monaco on Thursday to determine the measures Russia needs to implement to be reinstated to world athletics.
The IAAF is also awaiting the findings of a report into the conduct of its officials, which the Wada commission chairman Dick Pound said has a "wow factor".
That section of the report, likely to be released in January, has been held back after a French police investigation began earlier this month into former IAAF president Lamine Diack and former head of anti-doping Gabriel Dolle.
