WADA Seeks Comment on Draft Revision of the International Standard for Laboratories

As part of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) ongoing efforts to enhance worldwide anti-doping activities under the World Anti-Doping Code (Code), each of the International Standards undergo periodic revision for fine-tuning based on consultation with WADA’s stakeholders.

The International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) revision process started in June 2005 with an initial revision completed in June 2006. The first consultation period with WADA stakeholders on version 4.4 of the ISL was held in July-August 2006. The comments received were carefully considered by WADA, and modifications have been made accordingly. The second consultation period of the ISL is currently underway, and the newest draft version of the ISL (version XXXX) is available online for stakeholder review and comments.
