WHAT IS ADAMS?
The Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS) was developed to coordinate anti-doping activities of the stakeholders and to help them with their implementation of the Code, and to enable easier whereabouts submission.
ADAMS is an internet-based database management tool available in several languages.
It is a centralized system that allows data entry and storage, as well as data-sharing and reporting to take place in a highly secure environment that restricts access to all but relevant parties.
It is designed exclusively to assist stakeholders in their anti-doping operations with full compliance with the World Anti-Doping Code.
All data in ADAMS is highly protected thanks to a security system that complies with the highest protection standards.
