A talk I went to show that it is probably worse. To create the test they need a standard population of undoped athletes, so what they use is amateur athletes who claim they haven't doped. For one of the tests in the undoped group was one obvious high outlier who probably was doping, but in creating the test they have to assume that he was clean. Result is that the limit is set much higher than it should be.
