WADA postpones 29 September webinar regarding International Standard for Laboratories to 13 October

Further to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA’s) communication of 17 September, please take note that WADA has postponed its 29 September 2020 webinar regarding the ‘International Standard for Laboratories (ISL) 2021 (Version 11): Impact for Laboratories’ until 13 October at 08:00 EDT.

WADA apologizes for the late postponement; however, there has been a delay in publishing the final designed version of the ISL that was approved by the Agency’s Executive Committee when they met on 14-15 September.  WADA will publish the final version in the coming days, which will then give webinar participants time to review the document and formulate any questions they may have before the webinar is held on 13 October.

We take this opportunity to remind stakeholder of WADA’s webinar schedule for October 2020. The webinars are being hosted in English.
