In compliance with TD2021EAAS the following changes will be available in ADAMS on 04 May 2021 for the Sample Received after 01 April 2021.

Lab Results


TA approval required for ATPF-Confirmation Procedure

  • For samples that triggered an Atypical Passport Finding Confirmation request (ATPF-CPR) notification, it is mandatory to indicate whether the Testing Authority (TA) has approved the confirmation procedure or not when:
    • at least one Confounding Factors is detected,
    • or the Test Result is an “AAF” (for other Prohibited Substance(s) or Method(s)).
      For confirmations requests that are not approved by the TA one of the following reasons must be provided:
      • See APMU Report (a text box is available to specify details)
      • TUE
      • Multiple AAFs
      • Previous samples with EtG and negative IRMS results.

Note: Updates can be done either manually or using batch files. (CSV or XML).

Adverse Analytical Findings test results should be entered manually until further notice.


  • Suspicious confirmation procedure requests (SSP-CPR) notifications will no longer be sent to the analyzing lab users.
  • SSP-CPR notifications will be sent to the Passport Custodian, its APMU, and the sample’s Testing Authority only when one of the conditions is met:
    1. T/E ratio > 4.0
    2. Concentration of T or E (adjusted for the SG) > 200 ng/mL in males or > 50 ng/mL in females or unknown
    3. Concentration of A or Etio (adjusted for the SG) > 10,000 ng/mL
    4. Concentration of 5αAdiol (adjusted for the SG) > 250 ng/mL in male or > 150 ng/mL in female or unknown.
