The U.S. Olympic Committee is expressing support for the actions the World Anti-Doping Agency took this week when it issued a partial suspension of the testing laboratory at UCLA.

WADA said the UCLA lab can continue its anti-doping work but must obtain a second opinion before reporting any positive findings pertaining to four anabolic steroids and glucocorticoids. It said that in cases limited to those substances, UCLA has not been relying on best practices.

USOC Chief Executive Scott Blackmun expressed satisfaction with the restrictions placed on the UCLA lab.

“We’re completely in favor of strict compliance with the code,” Blackmun said after a quarterly meeting of the USOC board in North Carolina. “To the extent that any laboratory is noncompliant, whether it’s in the U.S. or otherwise, we support the direction that WADA has taken.”
