Due to the special Anti-Doping Policy for Rio 2016, the EB confirmed that Bulgaria is not eligible to participate in the upcoming Olympic Games and decided to withdraw 1 quota from Romania due to the multiple positive cases in the qualification period.

The Executive Board took the decision that Honduras, Panama, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, and Tajikistan cannot participate at the 2015 IWF World Championships Houston, USA since their athletes did not submit their whereabouts information in ADAMS.
