ADAMS

The Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS) coordinates and simplifies anti-doping activities.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has an obligation, under the World Anti-Doping Code (Code), to coordinate anti-doping activities and to provide tools to assist stakeholders with their implementation of the Code.

ADAMS is designed to be a secure and cost-free web-based system that centralizes doping control-related information such as athlete whereabouts, testing history, laboratory results, the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP), Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) and information on Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs).

ADAMS is designed to allow anti-doping data to be securely stored and shared among relevant organizations. It promotes efficiency, transparency and effectiveness in all anti-doping activities.

Who uses ADAMS and why?

ADAMS is used by athletes, ADOs and their delegates, and WADA-accredited laboratories and WADA-approved laboratories for the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) to support their day-to-day responsibilities related to anti-doping.

For athletes, ADAMS is used for submitting their whereabouts. ADAMS can also be used for athletes to manage the application and recognition of TUEs.

ADAMS allows ADOs to coordinate and manage:

  • Athletes under their jurisdiction, including accessing athlete Whereabouts
  • TUEs
  • Test planning and execution
  • Results Management
  • ABP

ADAMS is essential for laboratories and Athlete Passport Management Units (APMU) reporting and interpreting results.

ADAMS facilitates paperless doping control (sample collection) through the DCO Central app. The module supports:

  • Athlete Notification Form
  • Doping Control Form (DCF)
  • Chain of Custody
  • Unsuccessful attempt (related to Whereabouts)
  • Athlete refusal
  • Doping Control Officer (DCO) Report
