The Bolivian NOC, has resolved the outstanding issue related to the use of non-accredited laboratories and, as such, finds itself once again Code compliant.

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).

ABC NewsBolivia has been removed from the list of countries deemed non-compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency code.

WADA says Bolivia “has resolved the outstanding issue related to the use of non-accredited laboratories and, as such, finds itself once again code compliant.”

In November, Bolivia had been among six countries found to be non-compliant with the global anti-doping code, along with Andorra, Argentina, Israel, Russia and Ukraine. Israel and Argentina have since fallen into line.

The announcement of Bolivia’s reinstatement came on the same day that Beijing’s anti-doping lab was suspended for up to four months for failing to meet WADA testing standards. The Moscow and Lisbon labs were stripped of their accreditation in the past week.
