During the period of suspension, WADA requires Beijing laboratory to securely transport samples to another WADA-accredited laboratory.

“Whenever a laboratory does not meet International Standard for Laboratories requirements, WADA may suspend the laboratory’s accreditation,” WADA said.

Beijing laboratory has 21 days to appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. The laboratory also needs to take “five remedial steps” highlighted by a disciplinary committee, according to WADA.
