'UKAD's findings represent an organisation and culture that, despite delivering on the world stage, did not meet the high standards that British Cycling today holds itself to, ' said British Cycling chief executive officer Julie Harrington.
UKAD confirmed that no anti-doping charges will be brought against either of the two cycling bodies. 'It follows that UKAD does not intend to issue any anti-doping charges in relation to the package'. This is a serious concern, ' she said.
It was at the first of those DCMS hearings last December that British Cycling's bosses admitted they did not know what was in the package, only for Team Sky principal Sir Dave Brailsford to tell the MPs that Dr Freeman had told him it was fluimucil and it was administered by a nebuliser to treat Wiggins' allergies.
"We note that UKAD have referred information arising from their investigation to the General Medical Council and we offer them our wholehearted cooperation", said Harrington. In their own statement, the GMC said: "UKAD have made us aware of these concerns and we are looking into these".
A 14-month investigation by United Kingdom Anti-Doping into allegations of wrongdoing at British Cycling and Team Sky has ended with no charges being brought against either organisation due to a "lack of contemporaneous evidence".
"We are pleased that UK Anti-Doping have concluded their investigation and that they will not be taking any further action", read the statement.
UKAD can not punish British Cycling for a lack of medical records as this does not count as an anti-doping violation, but it said it would co-operate with any future inquiry by the General Medical Council, which regulates the conduct of doctors in Britain.
'British Cycling have implemented a number of significant changes to the management of our medical services to the Great Britain Cycling Team following a review instigated in March by chair Jonathan Browning, shortly after his appointment, ' she continued.
"We have always maintained that there was no wrongdoing and we have co-operated fully with UK Anti-Doping over the past year".
She also touched on what many have perceived as a concerning overlap between Team Sky and British Cycling's operations.
"Since our inception as a new pro cycling team in 2010 we have continually strengthened our systems and processes so they best support our strong commitment to anti-doping". In this case the matter was further complicated by the cross over between personnel at British Cycling and Team Sky.
British Cycling has defended its link with Team Sky as 'a positive force for cycling in this country.' However Harrington accepted that 'The relationship between British Cycling and Team Sky developed rapidly and as a result, at times, resulted in the blurring of the boundaries between the two'.
In a statement, British Cycling thanked UKAD for their determination in investigating the case and admit their findings have shown high standards had not been met.
DCMS chairman Damian Collins memorably said these revelations, and others about how medicines were ordered and prescribed, left the reputation of British Cycling and Team Sky "in tatters".
"My focus now is on ensuring that we can give athletes and the public the reassurance they need to believe in our ability to win clean on the biggest global stages because of the systems and controls we have put in place. We are intent on ensuring that the integrity of our record keeping is never called into question again".
