What is ADAMS ?

The Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS) was developed by WADA, in order to provide a mechanism to assist stakeholders to coordinate anti-doping activities.

ADAMS is a web-based database management tool that simplifies the daily activities of all stakeholders. This system allows data entry, storage, sharing and reporting. It supportsthe result management, the administration of Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs), the gymnast's whereabouts information and test distribution planning.

Not only is it easy to use, but also it is free to WADA's stakeholders in English and French, as well as Arabic, Bulgarian, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the fight against doping in sport.

All data in ADAMS is stored in a highly secure environment and access is carefully controlled to ensure that data is available to relevant parties only.

Helpdesk support is made available 24 hours, 5 days a week, from WADA

FIG started using ADAMS since 1 January 2009 for all whereabouts submissions and TUE requests.

The transition to ADAMS is a significant and positive step forward for FIG, its NFs and most importantly the gymnasts. Gymnasts will only have to provide one set of whereabouts accessible to the relevant organizations (International Federation, WADA, NADOs). Furthermore, as ADAMS is a global system, testing programs around the world will be better coordinated, therefore giving greater confidence to gymnasts and ensuring a single system for all gymnasts to access.

ADAMS Primary Functions

ADAMS has four primary functions addressing key activities of anti-doping operations:

Athlete Whereabouts

This functionality allows athletes to enter information about their location from anywhere in the world; and those without Web access may designate a representative such as their ADO to enter the information for them.

TUE Management

ADAMS allows for online management and storage of TUE requests and decisions.

Information Clearinghouse

The clearinghouse is where data is stored, in particular laboratory results, Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) authorizations and anti-doping rule violations. It permits the sharing of information among the relevant organizations and guarantees that anti-doping activities are performed with the highest level of transparency.

Doping Control Platform

The ADAMS doping control database provided to ADOs is an essential tool for managing a doping control program, both in- and out-of-competition. Stakeholders can use ADAMS to plan, coordinate, and order tests, as well as manage test results.
