ADAMS (Anti-Doping Administration and Management System) is WADA's Internet-based database for managing anti-doping information.
ADAMS can be accessed via the URL adams.wada-ama.org/adams or WADA's 'Athlete Central' app, allowing access from anywhere in the world.
All RTP and NTP athletes submit their whereabouts data in ADAMS.
