WADA STATEMENT REGARDING BERLINGER DOPING CONTROL SECURITY BOTTLES
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. Specifically, the customer reported that a limited number of bottles had cracked when frozen. 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.
