AIBA Registered Testing Pool, Inclusion and corresponding obligations
In accordance with the World Anti-Doping Code and its International Standards published by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), as well as with the AIBA Anti-Doping Rules, AIBA identifies each year the athletes to be included in the RTP for the purpose of its anti-doping testing program. RTP Athletes are subject to specific requirements.
All AIBA 2015 RTP athletes are required to submit information on their whereabouts to AIBA during the entire year 2015.
Whereabouts filings are submitted through the online database ADAMS.
The information entered into ADAMS is shared with WADA and other anti-doping organisations that have jurisdiction to test RTP Athletes in order to facilitate the planning of out-of-competition tests. The information provided will solely be used for anti-doping purposes, and is treated in strict confidentiality.
Please note that all RTP Athletes will remain in the AIBA RTP until they are informed by AIBA that this is no longer the case, or if they officially retire from competition, in which case they will need to notify AIBA accordingly, in writing.
Deadlines for submitting your Whereabouts Filings
Whereabouts filings are submitted on a quarterly basis. For each quarter, a deadline for submission is indicated by AIBA. The deadlines applicable in 2015 are the following:
Q1: 1 January – 31 March 2015
Q2: 1 April - 30 June 2015
Q3: 1 July – 30 September 2015
Q4: 1 October – 31 December 2015
31 December 2014
25 March 2015
25 June 2015
25 September 2015
Submitting their whereabouts filings in a timely manner is essential, as late filings may lead to sanctions. Note: all AIBA RTP Athletes have an obligation to be available for testing at any time and place and to comply with any request for testing by any anti-doping organization with testing jurisdiction.
Sanctions for Non-Compliance
If RTP Athlete does not submit his/her whereabouts by the deadline provided by AIBA, or the RTP Athlete submits incomplete or inaccurate whereabouts, he/she will be liable for a FILING FAILURE and will receive an official letter from AIBA notifying him/her of this.
If inaccurate or incomplete whereabouts information in ADAMS results in an unsuccessful attempt to test the RTP Athlete out-of-competition during his/her 1-hour testing slot, the RTP athlete will be liable for a MISSED TEST and will receive an official letter from AIBA notifying him/her of this.
If inaccurate or incomplete whereabouts information in ADAMS results in an unsuccessful attempt to test the RTP Athlete out-of-competition outside of your 1-hour testing slot, the RTP Athlete may be liable for a FILING FAILURE and will receive an official letter from AIBA notifying him/her of this.
In each case, the procedure laid down in the International Standard for Testing (IST) will be followed to determine whether a Missed Test or a Filing Failure will be recorded against the RTP Athlete.
Any combination of three Missed Tests and/or Filing Failures committed within a 12-month period shall constitute an anti-doping rule violation for which the sanction is two years, subject to reduction down to a minimum of one year, depending on the Athlete’s degree of Fault (first offence) or more (for second and subsequent offences). See Articles 2.4, 10.3.2 and 10.7.1 of AIBA’s Anti-Doping Rules.
The RTP Athlete may wish to have his/her coach or another person assist him/her in complying with these whereabouts requirements and choose to delegate the making of some or all of his/her Whereabouts Filing to this person. That is permitted. Please contact us at if you would like to set this up.
However, please note that RTP Athletes remains personally responsible for any failure to comply with the requirements of the AIBA Anti-Doping Rules. The fact that the RTP Athletes delegated the task to someone else who failed to carry it out properly does not release him/her from his/her liability.
Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE)
As per AIBA’s Anti-Doping Rules, if RTP Athlete is under a medical condition requiring the use of a prohibited substance or method, he/she must submit a TUE application as soon as possible upon reception of this notification, and in any event no later than thirty (30) days prior to your participation in an AIBA event.
