What's New in Release 4.0.5 ?

  • Whereabouts requirement exception – 60-min time slot

 In accordance with changes to the 2015 International Standard for Testing and Investigations (ISTI Annex I.3.3), Athletes in-competition could be exempted from submitting "60-min time slots" for the in competition days by their Whereabouts Custodian.
Please contact the ADAMS Team for additional information.

  •  Whereabouts entries – rooming list information

Rooming information (Building, Floor, Room number) fields were added to the website's whereabouts entry form. Update on Mobile App will be done shortly.

  •  Duplicate Test Warning

In an effort to avoid duplicate testing and promote coordination between ADOs via ADAMS, Anti-Doping Organizations (ADO) will be able to activate duplicate test warnings for specific Testing Authorities (TA).


ADO1 will be able to designate ADO2 as a trusted organization for planned tests. This means that whenever ADO2 (TA is ADO2) plans a test within X number of days (parameter set by ADO1) of a test planned or completed by ADO1, ADAMS will display a warning.

  •  Mission Order – TDSSA Sport-Discipline

The athletes’ sport-discipline selected in mission orders will be restricted to the ones in the TDSSA list.

When an athlete with a non TDSSA sport-discipline is added to a MO, users will be prompted to select a compliant discipline.

  •  Chain of Custody – new ADO reference number field

An ADO reference number field will be added to the Chain of Custody form.

  •  Negative finding - Quick Search

A new quick search type “Negative Finding” will return records based on athlete name or sample code.

The format of the athlete accreditation ID was updated from [id_type, number, event name, event dates] to [id number] and will only be displayed for current major events on athlete profiles.
