WADA publishes Technical Document for Laboratory Documentation Packages

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) announces the publication of the Technical Document for Laboratory Documentation Packages (TD2019LDOC), which was approved by WADA’s Executive Committee on 4 November 2019; and, is required to be implemented by all WADA-accredited laboratories with immediate effect.

The revised TD2019LDOC replaces the former TD2017LDOC (version 2) and includes clarification on the quality control samples required for Documentation Packages in Appendix E: Blood Athlete Biological Passport (ABP). In addition, some definitions have been updated for consistency with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) version 10.0.

Should you have any questions regarding the above Technical Document, we kindly invite you to contact WADA’s Science Department at science@wada-ama.org. Should you wish to consult previously issued Technical Documents, they are available and indexed on WADA’s website.
