Providing accurate and up-to-date whereabouts is about protecting your right to clean sport.
Whereabouts failures are a means to ensure compliance to Anti-Doping Rules.
Please note, that the Athletics Integrity Unit will be taking a more stringent approach to whereabouts requirements in 2020. You must read this information carefully.
Under the World Athletics Anti-Doping Rules, any combination of 3 whereabouts failures (Filing Failure and/or Missed Test) within a period of 12 months constitute an anti-aoping rule violation, for which the applicable sanction is 2 years' ineligibility subject to a reduction to a minimum of 1 year depending on your degree of fault.
Whereabouts failures will be systematically and strictly enforced by the AIU. Athletes’ compliance with the Whereabouts programme is crucial and the AIU expects your full cooperation to avoid Whereabouts Failures.
