MONTREAL (AP) — The World Anti-Doping Agency has revoked the accreditation of a laboratory in Tunisia because it has failed to comply with international standards.
WADA's Executive Committee announced the decision Monday following a review by its disciplinary panel. From June 10, the Tunis laboratory will no longer be authorized to carry out anti-doping controls unless it has its accreditation restored by WADA.
The laboratory had also been suspended two years ago for failing to meet WADA's quality requirements.
WADA is responsible for accrediting anti-doping laboratories and ensuring those labs maintain the highest quality standards.
The Tunis lab may appeal this decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport within 21 days.
