How do Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs), Delegated Third Parties (DTPs) and laboratories implement ADAMS?
Implementing ADAMS starts by signing an agreement that will govern the ADO’s, DTP's and laboratory's use of ADAMS and notifying users of how their personal information will be processed.
- Agreement Governing the Use and Sharing of Information in ADAMS - This Agreement is to be signed by WADA and the ADO, DTP or laboratory. A copy can be obtained by contacting WADA.
- Notice to athletes – ADOs, DTPs and laboratories must inform athletes and other participants of their processing of personal information under the International Standard for the Protection of Privacy and Personal Information (ISPPPI), including where this processing is carried out using ADAMS. To comply with this obligation, ADOs, DTPs and laboratories can use the Anti-Doping Privacy Notice Template (or Athlete Information Notice) available on WADA’s website, adapted or supplemented as needed. A template Doping Control Form and TUE Application Form are also available on WADA’s website to assist ADOs with their obligations in this regard.
Once these steps are fulfilled, WADA will provide the ADO with user accounts, allowing the ADO to make full use of ADAMS for their day-to-day anti-doping operations.
More information about ADAMS is available in the ADAMS Help Center.
WADA provides remote ADAMS training to interested stakeholders. The sessions are customized to stakeholder needs, focusing on the ADAMS functionality required for their organization.
In order to schedule a training session, ADOs must first contact WADA to obtain a copy of the ADAMS Agreement for the Sharing of Information for signature.
