As reported, in 2015, WADA announced that RUSADA is not consistent with the code of the organization after the investigation of Richard McLaren about doping in Russian sports.

First, it must publicly and unequivocally accept the findings of the Commission regarding the McLaren “state-supported system of doping”. Second, to provide access to WADA doping tests in Moscow anti-doping laboratory.
