Whereabouts Filing Requirements for RTP 1 Athletes
A player in the IFF Registered Testing Pool 1 (IFF RTP 1) is required to make a quarterly Whereabouts Filing that provides accurate and complete information about the Athlete’s whereabouts during the forthcoming quarter. A failure to do so amounts to a Filing Failure and therefore a Whereabouts Failure for purposes of WADA Code Article 2.4.
A player in the IFF Registered Testing Pool 1 (IFF RTP 1) must file a Whereabouts Filing with the IFF that contains the following information:
60-minute time slot
An athlete in the IFF Registered Testing Pool is also required to specify in his/her Whereabouts Filing, for each day in the forthcoming quarter, one specific 60-minute time slot where he/she will be available at a specified location for Testing. This does not limit in any way the Athlete’s obligation to be available for Testing at any time and place. Nor does it limit his/her obligation to provide the information specified in Clause 11.3 as to his/her whereabouts outside of that 60-minute time slot.
However, if the Athlete is not available for Testing at such location during the 60-minute time slot specified for that day in his/her Whereabouts Filing, and has not updated his/her Whereabouts Filing prior to that 60-minute time slot to provide an alternative time slot/location for that day, that failure shall amount to a Missed Test and shall therefore constitute a Whereabouts Failure for purposes of the rule (IST 11.1.4).
Filing Failure/Missed Test Consequence
Any combination of 3 Filing Failures and/or Missed Tests committed within an 18-month period at an International (IFF) or national (NADO) level will constitute and Anti-doping Rule Violation (1-2 ears ineligibility period)
Therapeutic Use Exemptions for athletes in the RTP 1
The athletes in the IFF RTP 1 that are using any prohibited substance must send in a regular Therapeutic Use Exemption before the Use of the substance. See IFF TUE Guidelines.
