Introduction - Whereabouts Requirements

The Whereabouts function in ADAMS allows the athlete to enter and submit their whereabouts information on a quarterly basis.

If the athlete is part of a Registered Testing Pool – either a National or International - then the whereabouts requirements are enforced by ADAMS. These requirements are based on the current International Standard for Testing and Investigations  (ISTI), available on the WADA Web site:

  • A mailing address
  • An e-mail address
  • A 60-minute time slot must be entered for each day in the quarter where the athlete has to be available and accessible for Testing at a specified location. This time slot must take place between 05:00 and 23:00.
  • An overnight accommodation must also be entered for each day in the quarter.
  • The athlete must enter the competitions that occur for a given quarter.
  • The athlete must also enter their regular activities for the quarter: training, work, class etc.
