Major Event Organizers can request to WADA to create a Major Event in order to facilitate the access to the relevant athlete profiles. How to proceed?

    1. Major Event Organizer (MEO)
    2. Testing Authority (TA)
    3. Sample Collection Agency (SCA)
    4. Result Management Authority (RMA)
    5. List of sports and disciplines practiced during the event (the reference list of sports disciplines available in ADAMS can be downloaded here).
    6. Start and end dates of the event
    7. Start and End date of the testing (i.e., the Event Period as per the Code, established by the MEO)
    8. Country and City of the event
      Following an internal process review, the event will be added in ADAMS. (If the Sample Collection Authority is a Delegated Third Party the signature of the contract will be required).

  • Athlete profiles
  • Therapeutic Use Exemptions for recognition
  • Whereabouts information
  • Result Management
