Check your whereabouts requirements...

Athletes in an IF RTP must ensure they comply with the IF’s whereabouts requirements. It is your responsibility to know of your IF’s requirements. To help you find the information relevant to your particular sport, the World Anti-Doping Agency has compiled a list of IF websites. Please contact the CCES if you need assistance obtaining information from, or about, the IF.

This will likely include:

  • Submit quarterly whereabouts information to your IF.
  • Ensure this information is kept up to date and accurate throughout each quarter.
  • Indicate a 60-minute time slot each day throughout each quarter when you guarantee your location and accessibility for a test.

If your IF uses ADAMS, you must use ADAMS to submit your whereabouts. ADAMS is an online system that makes it easy to submit and update from anywhere at any time, and you will only have to submit your whereabouts information once for both the IF and the CCES. Find out more about ADAMS.

Many IFs are using ADAMS and some have made ADAMS mandatory for whereabouts submissions. These include:

  • FIBT (Bobsleigh, Skeleton)
  • FIG (Gymnastics)
  • FIL (Luge)
  • FILA (Wrestling)
  • FINA (Diving, Swimming, Waterpolo, and Synchronized Swimming)
  • FIS (Alpine Ski, Cross Country Ski, Freestyle Ski, and Snowboarding)
  • IAAF (Athletics)
  • IBU (Biathlon)
  • ICF (Canoe-Kayak, flatwater and slalom)
  • ISU (Figure and Speed Skating)
  • IPC (Paralympic Sports)
  • ITU (Triathlon)
  • UCI (Cycling)
  • WTF (Taekwondo)
