As part of WADA's ongoing efforts to enhance worldwide anti-doping activities under the World Anti-Doping Code (Code), each of the International Standards undergoes periodic revision for fine-tuning based on consultation with WADA's stakeholders.
The International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) revision process continued in January-June 2008 after the release of the current version 5.0. This revision was initiated primarily to update and harmonize the ISL with the provisions of the revised Code which comes into force in January 2009. In addition, several technical documents underwent the revision process. Furthermore, an explanatory note was prepared by the WADA Laboratory Working Committee for reference by stakeholders.
The deadline for comment is August 18, 2008.
