The anti-dop­ing lab­o­ra­tory in Mex­ico City has been shut down for up to six months for fall­ing below in­ter­na­tional test­ing stan­dards. It is the sixth ac­cred­ited lab world­wide that is cur­rently sus­pended.

The anti-dop­ing lab­o­ra­tory in Mex­ico City has been shut down for up to six months for fall­ing below in­ter­na­tional test­ing stan­dards.

The World Anti-Dop­ing Agency says the lab could be asked to re­view test re­sults and re-an­a­lyze sam­ples that re­cently tested pos­i­tive.

It is the sixth of 34 WADA-ac­cred­ited labs world­wide to be cur­rently sus­pended from work­ing.

The oth­ers are: Al­maty, Kaza­khstan; Lis­bon, Por­tu­gal; Doha, Qatar; Madrid; and Bloem­fontein, South Africa.

WADA says the sus­pen­sion of Mex­ico City’s ac­cred­i­ta­tion could be ex­tended by up to six more months if “non-con­for­mi­ties” are not ad­dressed or new ones are found.
