"WADA is pleased to confirm that the Beijing Laboratory’s accreditation has been reinstated just ahead of the maximum four-month suspension that was issued in April. We are confident that the laboratory has corrected its deficiencies; and, will now be operating to the high standards required by WADA," WADA Director General Olivier Niggli was quoted as saying in a statement on the agency’s website.
Earlier in the day, the laboratory said it had received a notice from WADA confirming it had met the agency’s technical requirements.
WADA started a probe into China’s anti-doping agency following media reports alleging that it could be involved in covering up positive drugs tests among swimmers. The laboratory has denied the allegations saying that the false negative results occurred due to technical issues.
