A meeting will be held between the Association of International Olympic Winter Sports Federations (AIOWF) and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) next month in order to discuss the strength of the evidence about Russian athletes in the McLaren Report.
The meeting, due to be held on February 21 and 22, comes after a period in which events have been stripped from Russia across four winter sports while eight athletes have been provisionally suspended.
Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against 28 Russians by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) following evidence their doping samples were tampered with at Sochi 2014.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)-commissioned McLaren Report also makes similar allegations against winter athletes outside the Olympics.
"All allegations related to Sochi 2014 fall under the jurisdiction of the IOC, while all allegations and evidence related to matters outside the time of the Olympic Games remain the responsibility of the respective Winter IF," read the AIOWF statement, which was posted on the website of the International Skating Union (ISU).
"In this regard formal legal procedures are now underway by the IFs against a number of accused athletes.
"In these procedures, the IFs respect the general principles of law, in particular the presumption of innocence, the right to be heard and due process.
"In some cases, provisional suspensions have had to be lifted and procedures dropped due to a lack of evidence currently provided by WADA to issue sanctions able to stand up to legal challenge.
"In this context the Winter IFs look forward to the upcoming meeting with WADA on February 21 and 22 to address details relating to the findings in the McLaren Report.
AIOWF is an umbrella organisation of the seven federations which govern sports at the Winter Olympics.
International Ski Federation (FIS) President Gian-Franco Kasper is head of the body after replacing International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) counterpart René Fasel in 2014.
The statement comes as part of an attempt to show a united front as well as close cooperation with the ongoing IOC investigations.
This includes the IOC re-testing of samples given in Sochi as well a probe conducted by former Swiss President Samuel Schmid into who is responsible for the Russian programme.
Appeals launched by Russian cross-country skiers Yevgeny Belov and Olympic champion Aleksandr Legkov against provisional suspensions introduced by FIS were rejected this week.
Four Russian skeleton athletes, including Olympic men's champion Alexander Tretiakov have had their provisional suspensions lifted by the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) this month, however, because there is "not yet sufficient evidence" against them.
The International Biathlon Union (IBU) also dismissed cases against 22 athletes from the country named in the McLaren Report for a lack of evidence.
Seven competitors from the scandal-hit nation remain the subject of an IBU probe, though, including two also being investigated by the IOC.
The IBSF World Championships due to take place in Sochi next month has been among events removed from Russia.
Competitions in biathlon, cross-country skiing and speed skating have also either been stripped from the country or vacated by the Russians.
However, IIHF President Fasel has offered more encouragement to Russia by swiftly announcing how the country will not be stripped of the Under-18 World Championship in 2018.
The IIHF are also yet to announce any sort of probe against Russian players named by McLaren Report, despite evidence that two unnamed female players in Sochi submitted samples showing male DNA.
insidethegames has contacted the body for an update, but has not yet received any response.
"To ensure a level playing field in the current season and in the qualification for the upcoming Olympic Winter Games Pyeongchang 2018, the Winter IFs are striving to finalise all these procedures as soon as possible," the AIOWF statement concluded.
"Furthermore the Winter IFs have increased additional target testing on Russian athletes already following publication of the first part of the McLaren Report in July 2016.
"The International Olympic Winter Sports Federations would like to reiterate once again their absolute focus on the integrity of competition and their sports, addressing all available evidence and progressing with urgency the outstanding cases and information."
