The Doping Control Process


1 Doping Control

Your urine and/or blood can be collected anytime and anywhere for doping control.


2 Athlete selection

You will be notified by a doping control officer (DCO) or chaperone about your selection for doping control. You will be asked to sign a form confirming that you understand your rights and responsibilities.


3 Report station

You will report to the doping control station as soon as possible.

From the time of notification to the end of the doping control process, you will be accompanied at all times.


4 Choose vessel

You will choose a collection vessel from the selection provided.


5-6 Provide sample

• A minimum amount of 90mL of urine will need to be provided.

• You will disrobe from knees to navel and from your hands to elbow to provide an unobstructed view of the passing of the sample.

• A DCO or chaperone of the same gender will observe the urine leaving your body.


07 Split the sample

Choose a sample collection kit from the selection provided. Split the sample in the A and B bottles. Pour urine up to the line in the B bottle first. Next, fill the A bottle and leave a small portion in the collection vessel.


08 Seal the sample

Seal the A and B bottles.


09 Specific gravity

The DCO will measure the specific gravity of the sample to ensure it is not too diluted to analyze.

If it is too dilute, you may be required to provide additional samples.


10 Sign the form

You will complete the Doping Control Form, by:

• providing personal information

• noting any substances you may be taking: prescription medication, over the counter medication and supplements

• noting concerns or comments, if you have any, about the doping control

• confirming the information, recorded numbers and sample code are correct

• signing and receiving your copy of the doping control form


11 Sample analysis

Samples will be sent to a WADA accredited laboratory in strict confidentiality and will be tracked to ensure their security. Your A sample will be analyzed and your B sample will be securely stored for further testing if required. The laboratory will send the results to the responsible anti-doping organization (ADO) and WADA.
