Athletes might get tested anytime and anywhere without previous notice, no matter if they are included in an UIPM Registered Testing Pool (RTP) or not. Generally we distinguish In-competition testing and Out-of-competition testing.

Check out the WADA’s Doping Control Video to get an explanation of the entire process below.

This video is also available in Arabic, French, German, Greek, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish and can be accessed on WADA’s YouTube channel.

Be aware: Refusing, or failing without compelling justification, to submit to Sample collection after notification as authorized in applicable anti-doping rules or otherwise evading Sample collection is considered as an anti-doping rule violation.
