Non-WADA blood labs get chance to test in global anti-doping programme

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has approved the use of non-accredited laboratories to conduct anti-doping blood testing under its Athlete Biological Passport Program. The decision announced by the executive committee following its 8-9 May meeting in Montreal, Canada, will support a significant expansion of anti-doping testing activity in countries or regions that are underserved by the world's 35 WADA-accredited laboratories, without having to transport the samples to other regions, said the agency. Existing haematological laboratories will have to fulfil a number of criteria, including the support of at least one anti-doping organisation, valid ISO accreditation and compliance with WADA's blood testing standards.
