In an effort to further enhance the practicality and user-friendliness of its Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS), WADA has now established a formalized permanent consultation process. Athletes, anti-doping organizations, laboratories and other ADAMS users are encouraged to provide feedback in the interest of the widest possible spectrum of users. This consultation will supplement the daily contacts WADA has with ADAMS users worldwide.
ADAMS is a web-based database management system that simplifies the daily activities of all stakeholders and athletes involved in the anti-doping system—from athletes providing whereabouts information, to anti-doping organizations ordering tests, to laboratories reporting results, to anti-doping organizations managing results.
It is currently used by approximately 20,000 elite athletes around the world, close to 60 International Sport Federations, more than 40 National Anti-Doping Organizations and all 34 WADA-accredited laboratories. More and more partners are trained and added to the ADAMS system.
