The development of the testing program is one of the core functions of the department. Here, the testing department considers in particular the use of new substances and methods. Similarly, the entire work of the department is optimized through the exchange with service providers, laboratories, sports federations, other anti-doping organizations, and not least with the athletes.
Due to the improved provision and evaluation of information controls can be carried out more efficiently and intelligent. The two German WADA-accredited laboratories have contributed to the development to a large extent. Through the implementation of new methods of analysis and the exchanges with international experts they can offer an increasing analysis spectrum. Through international exchang on different levels of work and the implementation of WADA regulations, the testing department also contributes to promoting global equality.
