The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has partially suspended its accreditation of the UCLA Olympic Analytical Laboratory (UCLA Laboratory) effective 14 June 2017 for a period of three months. The suspension of certain analyses by the UCLA Laboratory (located in Los Angeles, California, United States) is a result of WADA’s quality assessment procedures that identified non-conformities with best practice. On 14 June 2017, an independent WADA Disciplinary Committee, which was advised by WADA’s Laboratory Expert Group (LabEG), delivered its recommendation to the Chair of the WADA Executive Committee that was accepted. On 16 June, the UCLA Laboratory was notified of the Decision. Source: WADA    

The National Anti-Doping Agency of Belarus (NADA Belarus) conducted OUTREACH Anti-Doping Quiz at the World Powerlifting Championships 2017 in Sports Palace in Minsk on June 20, 2017.

The participants who successfully completed the quiz received branded prizes from NADA Belarus and the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Belarus.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has warned the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) that it has until December to produce a report by December 2017 into how it plans to address doping. If IWF fails to do so, it risks to be excluded from the 2024 Olympics. The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Independent Observer (IO) report for the Rio 2016 Olympics found that ‘there was little or no In-Competition blood testing in many high risk sports and disciplines, including weightlifting’. This means that the IOC will have to rely on stored urine samples for any future retesting of weightlifters that competed at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. It should be noted that WADA has outlined a ‘graded sanctioning framework’ that would take any decision on whether to ban a non-compliant World Anti-Doping Code signatory from international competition. It is assumed that this would avoid the chaos that followed the IOC’s decision to place responsibility for the participation of Russian athletes at the Rio 2016 Olympics back into the hands of the international federations.

Norwegian weightlifter Ruth Kasirye in whose doping sample meldonium was found last year received a two-year disqualification. The Anti-Doping Committee of NOC Norway formed a decision that Kasirye had no intention to cheat thus bringing the term of disqualification down to 2 years (instead of 4 years). The disqualification of the athlete will be in force until 1 July 2018.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announces that, in accordance with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL), Sir Craig Reedie, Chairman of WADA’s Executive Committee, has approved the reinstatement of the WADA accreditation of the Doping Control Laboratory of Madrid (Madrid Laboratory) in Madrid, Spain. This decision allows the Laboratory to resume all of its anti-doping activities, including all analyses of urine and blood samples, with immediate effect. The Madrid Laboratory had its accreditation suspended on 6 June 2016 as a result of the WADA Foundation Board’s 19 March 2016 decision to declare the Spanish Anti-Doping Agency (AEPSAD) non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code. Pursuant to Article 4.4 of the ISL, in order for a laboratory to maintain its accreditation status, the National Anti-Doping Organization of the country of the laboratory must be Code compliant, as determined by WADA.
