International Standard for Testing

The purpose of the International Standard for Testing (IST) is to plan for effective testing and to maintain the integrity and identity of samples, from notifying the athlete to transporting samples for analysis.

The current IST, available in the Download Center to the right, went into force on January 1, 2012.

Previous versions of the IST can be found under Archives in the menu to the right.

More information on the IST, including whereabouts requirements, can be found in the Whereabouts sub-section.
