• Accreditation of Athens Laboratory suspended by WADA
October 05, 2019
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has suspended the accreditation of the Athens Laboratory for up to six months because of a "lack of institutional support and investment".
Non-conformities with the international standard were found by WADA during an inspection to the facility in the Greek capital.
The lack of funding in the laboratory was among the issues uncovered by inspectors from the global anti-doping watchdog.

The suspension prohibits the laboratory from carrying out any anti-doping activities, including analysis of all blood and urine samples.
