Guidelines for whereabouts submission
Who shall provide whereabouts
International-level Athletes are obliged to provide whereabouts information in ADAMS.
International-level Athletes are defined as (a) athletes registered in the IWF’s Registered Testing Pool (IRTP) and/or (b) athletes taking part in an IWF Event as defined in the IWF Anti-Doping Rules (IWF ADR).
In accordance with the rules of the IWF Anti-Doping Rules IRTP Athletes are required to provide whereabouts for the whole year quarterly.

Q1 – 15 December 2022
Q2 – 15 March 2023
Q3 – 15 June 2023
Q4 – 15 September 2023
From 2019 the IWF entered into an agreement with the International Testing Agency (ITA), from this point forward inclusion letters of IRTP athletes are sent out by ITA to the Member Federations.
Member Federations are obliged to inform their Athletes of their inclusion and are to send back to ITA the “Athlete Acknowledgement Form” signed by their athletes.
From notification of inclusion athletes are obliged to submit whereabouts for the determined quarter until the deadline set out in the notification letter.
Further to the above athletes who are not listed on the IWF’s Registered Testing Pool shall submit to IWF their whereabouts information, as set out in art. 5.5.16 of the 2023 IWF Anti-Doping Rules, including the following whereabouts information: home address and training location.
