WADA revokes accreditation of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) revoked the accreditation of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory.

This decision, according to the agency’s website, was made on the recommendation of the disciplinary committee “due to inconsistency with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) and its Code of Ethics.”

The Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory has been notified of the revocation of accreditation and can file a complaint in accordance with the established procedure, the report says.

In January 2020, WADA suspended the license of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory. From that moment on, she could only deal with work related to the analysis of blood samples for the biological passport of athletes.

WADA also revoked the license of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory in 2015, when Russia was accused of a massive doping support program. However, in 2016, the laboratory’s license was partially restored.

Until December 2022, Russians can take part in the Olympics and World Championships only in neutral status.
