The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) notes the decision of Swiss doping control security bottle manufacturer Berlinger Special AG to withdraw from the doping control business with immediate effect and makes the following statement: On 2 March, WADA was advised by Berlinger that feedback from one of its customers had raised possible concerns over the integrity of some of its bottles and that it had initiated an examination.

This cracking was noticed mainly in the 'BEREG-KIT Geneva' model, the production of which Berlinger had discontinued due to reports of improper closing in January 2018; and, to a much lesser extent, in the latest batch of the 'BEREG-KIT' model.

Adrian Barbu has been provisionally suspended under Article 8.3.1 of the 2017 Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (the "Programme"), pending determination of the charge against him at a full hearing pursuant to Article 8 of the Programme. Mr. Barbu, a 34-year-old player from Romania, provided a urine sample on 16 August 2017 in association with his participation in the Bucher Reisen Tennis Grand Prix, an ATP Challenger Tour event in Meerbusch, Germany. The sample was sent to the World Anti-Doping Agency (“WADA”) accredited laboratory in Montreal, Canada, for analysis and was found to contain nandrolone metabolite (19-norandrosterone) and methenolone (metenolone) metabolites. Nandrolone and metenolone are non-specified Prohibited Substances under the Programme, under category S.1.1 of the 2017 WADA Prohibited List (Anabolic Agents), and therefore are also prohibited under the Programme. Adverse Analytical Findings for Non-Specified Substances carry a mandatory provisional suspension.
