Anti-Doping Testing

Authority to test

All athletes affiliated with a National Airsport Control (NAC) shall be subject to in-competition testing by FAI, the athlete's NAC, and any other Anti-Doping Organisation responsible for testing at a competition or event in which they participate.

Responsibility for FAI testing

The FAI Medico-Physiological Commission is responsible for overseeing all testing conducted by FAI. Testing may be conducted by members of the FAI Medico-Physiological Commission or by other qualified persons so authorised by the FAI.

Selection of athletes to be tested

At International events, the FAI Air Sport Commission shall determine the number of tests to be performed. It shall maximise the diversity of athletes tested, and not necessarily target those linked to final placements.

If you are selected for testing, you can download a step-by-step guide to the testing procedure. You can also watch WADA's step by step video.

Registered Testing Pool (RTP)

The FAI maintains an RTP of those athletes who are required to provide up-to-date whereabouts information. Each athlete in the RTP must file reports with the FAI which specify on a daily basis the locations and times where the athlete will be residing.

ADAMS Administration and Management System

FAI encourages the use of WADA's ADAMS system of athlete's whereabouts administration. It remains the responsibility of the athlete to provide accurate whereabouts information. Information about the ADAMS system can be found on the WADA website:
