Anti-Doping News: Accelerated Management

Anti-Doping News: Accelerated Management

By ITU Admin on 19/02/09 at 12:01 am

One of the many positive changes to the World Anti-doping Agencys (WADA) 2009 Code is the improvement of the accelerated management of doping cases.  According to WADAs Play True magazine (Issue 3-2008)  revisions to the International Standard for Laboratories reduce the period of time between the analysis of the A sample and the B sample to seven working days.  (See the section on the International Standard for Laboratories, page 12.)  The 2009 Code also introduces a mandatory provisional suspension following an A sample adverse analytical finding for a prohibited substance other than for a specified substance.  Anti-doping organizations can decide to impose a provisional suspension following an adverse analytical finding for a specified substance or other anti-doping rule violation (Article 7.5.).
