The following user types are involved in the management of the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP):
The management of each athlete's biological passport is the responsibility of its Passport Custodian (PC) via its Athlete Passport Management Unit.
Since August 2014, this responsibility is assigned to the Testing Authority that of the first Doping Control Form (DCF) entered in ADAMS with the status “complete sample(s) collected”.
If the Testing Authority of the first DCF entered in the system is neither the International Federation (IF) nor the National Anti-Doping Organization (NADO) of the athlete (i.e. Major Event Organizer), the athlete’s Passport Custody is assigned to his IF.
If neither the IF nor the NADO of an athlete are active in ADAMS, then the athlete will not have a passport in ADAMS.
Passport Custodians are able to grant "read access" to other Anti-Doping Organizations and to transfer the passport custody of the athlete to another organization upon agreement.
Passport Custodians are also able to reset their athletes' BPID either because the athlete is returning to competition after a suspension or because the BPID is unable to guarantee the anonymity of the athlete. The options will be to either carry over the current passport data to a new BPID or to create a new blank passport. In any case it will be possible to restrict the access to a retired passport to only their organization users in order to maintain anonymity.
Athlete Passport Management Unit (APMU):
Any Anti-Doping Organization (ADO) implementing a hematological and/or a steroidal passport program will have to designate a separate hematological and steroidal APMU.
Once assigned by the ADAMS administrator to the ADO, the hematological and/or steroidal APMU is granted access to the relevant passports of the organization. Its users receive notifications of matching Doping Control Forms (DCF) and Laboratory results, Atypical Passport Findings as obtained by the Adaptive Model and are able to assign an expert to review passports and to report on a passport for target testing.
ABP experts are able to review and submit opinions on passports assigned to them by Athlete Passport Management Unit (APMU) users.
The administrators of APMU organizations are responsible for managing their ABP experts' accounts.
Note: the athlete's personal information (e.g. name, date of birth, nationality, ADAMS ID)… are not available to either APMU or to expert users.
