Argentina removed from World Anti-Doping Code’s non-compliant list

Following a circular vote of its Foundation Board members, WADA announces that it has removed the Secretaría de Deporte de la República Argentina (Argentinian NADO) from the list of signatories previously deemed non-compliant with the 2015 World Anti-Doping Code (Code). The Argentinian NADO has resolved the outstanding issue related to the use of non-accredited laboratories.

At WADA’s 18 November 2015 Foundation Board meeting, six Code Signatories were declared non-compliant. As stipulated in Article 23.5.5 of the Code, WADA then reported the declarations of non-compliance to the Sports Movement and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). WADA will update its stakeholders of the recent development concerning Argentina.
