In-competition testing (IC)
Central organisation of in-competition controls
NADA's testing department of responsible to coordinate and organize all out-of-competition tests of all national federations representated in the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB). NADA is independent in the selection of competitions as well as athletes and can therefore complement in-competition tests by the selection appropriate competitions. All controls can thus be organized intelligent and close meshed from the very first training session until season highlight of an athlete.
Process of an in-competition test
In-competition tests take place in principle after the competition. If the competition is over the selected athletes are informed by a chaperone about the test. The chaperon will inform the athlete aboit his rights and duties and will hand it out for signature. The athlete must - under constant monitoring by a chaperone - immediately seek the doping control station. Controls will take place in a doping control room. The doping control station has to protect the athlete's privacy adequately and may only be used as doping control station during the competition. The selection of athletes is done by NADA and can either be decided by placing, by name (target control) as well as by drawing lots.
