WADA suspends NDTL for six months


New Delhi: The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has suspended the accreditation of the National Dope Testing Laboratory (NDTL) for six months.

The move came due to non-conformities with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) as identified during a WADA site visit, the WADA stated in a media release on its website.

While the NDTL has been instructed to stop all testing procedures with immediate effect, it can still carry on with sample collection (blood and urine) but will have to get it tested by a different WADA accredited laboratory outside India during the suspension period of NDTL.

In order to ensure continued high-quality sample analysis, samples that have not yet been analysed by the NDTL or the samples currently undergoing a confirmation procedure and any samples for which an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF) must be securely transported to another WADA-accredited laboratory during the suspension of NDTL.
