(Reuters) - The National Doping Control Centre in Bangkok has been suspended for six months due to non-conformities, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said on Wednesday.

The suspension, which took effect on Nov. 18, prohibits the laboratory from carrying out any anti-doping activities, including all analyses of urine and blood samples.

WADA said the suspension was the result of a site visit that found non-conformities with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL).

The laboratory was given six months to address the issues otherwise WADA said it may extend the suspension for another six months.

During the suspension sample testing will be moved to another WADA accredited laboratory.
