ADAMS (access: https://adams.wada-ama.org/adams/) is WADA's global information system (Anti-Doping Administration and Management System), which NADA uses as well. All athletes in the Registered Testing Pools (RTPs) and the National Testing Pool (NTP) are linked up to ADAMS, so that all whereabouts information is filed exclusively through ADAMS.
In exceptional cases, in which athletes, or a third party, are briefly without internet access, whereabouts information can be updated over the phone or by SMS. You will find the user manual, the declaration of consent, information on how to send a notice of departure by SMS, plus FAQs as well, here or under Downloads.
In exceptional cases where athletes do not have access to the internet at short notice, updates to the whereabouts information can be made by telephone to NADA or by SMS via ADAMS. The user manual, declaration of consent, information for the SMS logout and FAQs can be found here or in the Downloads section.
Manuals and updates
The manual for the use of ADAMS is stored in the system. ADAMS is regularly updated by WADA. All information on the current updates can be found at the following link: http://www.wada-ama.org/en/ADAMS/ADAMS-Updates/.
In the course of securing athletes' data, WADA has built so-called security questions into ADAMS. An informative translation on how to set up the security questions as well as some general information on password assignment can be found here [link to ADAMS website].
Two-factor authentication for ADAMS
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has introduced two-factor authentication for ADAMS to increase data security. NADA has prepared a user guide for athletes which explains the most important steps for establishing two-factor authentication. NADA would like to point out that setting up two-factor authentication is voluntary and that athletes have the right to refuse it.
