Turin Games bosses are confident of finding a way to accommodate Italy's tough anti-doping laws before next year's Winter Olympics.
Rogge will discuss doping measures for the Games in February
Under Italian law, athletes can face criminal action for doping violations, which Olympic officials fear may cause problems at the February event.
But Turin Games government supervisor Mario Pescante said: "There will not be a change to the law.
"But we have found a solution to the law, a provision, something like that."
Pescante is set to discuss the issue with International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge this week.
The IOC strips the medals from athletes who test positive and expels them from the Olympic village. They are then banned by their governing federations.
But under Italian law, the IOC fears athletes could be subjected to police raids and risk prison if they test positive at the Games.
However, Pescante said: "I am going to see Rogge in two days' time.
"I am going to give him the latest update on the situation, suffice to say I am optimistic."
Rogge has reiterated the agency's zero tolerance approach to doping and said there would be 1,200 drug tests in Turin - 45% more than at the 2002 Games.
