DCO Central is the World Anti-Doping Agency’s new doping control application. DCO Central provides Sample Collection Agencies (SCAs) and Doping Control Officers (DCOs) with an online and offline solution for secure and fast doping control data processing. DCO Central leverages the Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS) to pre-populate the Doping Control Form with planned test and athlete profile information. All data is uploaded back to ADAMS, which reduces manual data entry and improves data integrity and accuracy. The app has real-time access to athlete’s whereabouts information to reduce the chances of an unsuccessful test attempt. DCO Central was developed with athletes in mind in order to promote and protect their health and the integrity of sport.
