Dear Colleagues,

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) launches a stakeholder consultation process to refine and revise the Technical Document for Blood Analytical Requirements for the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) (TD2019BAR). This Technical Document harmonizes the analysis of blood samples collected for the measurement of individual athlete blood markers within the framework of the ABP.

Stakeholders are invited to review the TD2019BAR and provide comments by 1 April 2019, using WADA’s online consultation platform, WADAConnect.

Once the consultation process is completed, stakeholders will be advised that the new TD2019BAR is to replace the TD2018BAR that is currently in force.

WADA’s Technical Documents provide specific technical recommendations to Anti-Doping Organizations and WADA-accredited laboratories. The Documents are refined and revised in consultation with WADA stakeholders.

For any questions related to the above, we invite you to contact

We thank you in advance for your feedback.

Best regards,

World Anti-Doping Agency
