WADA Launches ADAMS 3.0 16/12/2011

ADAMS Interface Even if it only concerns the select number of athletes who are currently required to provide Whereabouts Information, WDSF makes this information available here, advising that ...

WADA has launched an improved module within the Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS) that provides a more user-friendly and efficient Whereabouts interface for athletes.

ADAMS 3.0 became operational on 22 November after extensive testing by Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) and input from athletes. It is available in 11 languages, with an additional four languages soon to be added.

“WADA has put a great deal of time and resource into ADAMS and, following an extensive period of development and detailed consultation with athletes and ADOs, the new 3.0 module will enhance the user experience for all users,” said WADA Director General David Howman.

“As a central clearing house for ADOs worldwide, ADAMS’s importance to the anti-doping community continues to rise and the 3.0 module will allow athletes and their entourages to better record Whereabouts data.

“We want to make the experience as practical and time efficient as possible for the users and I am confident the new module has allowed WADA to take a significant step in this right direction.”

As well as simplifying the technical process of entering athlete Whereabouts data, the new module has an improved look and feel, and a modernized design.

Crucially, incorporated into the module is an instruction guide that offers a step-by-step explanation of the Whereabouts requirements and how to comply with them.

An ADAMS training environment, where users will be able to upload ficticious data and practise using the module, is available. Users who wish to gain access to this training site can do so by sending an email to: adams@wada-ama.org

To further help the learning process, WADA has also produced a training video.
