For the purpose of doping control and according to the guidelines from the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA, each anti-doping organization shall identify and establish testing pool(s) for athletes who are subjected to both in-competition and out-of-competition testing.
Most International Federations (IF) have identified and established Registered Testing Pools (RTPs) for international-level athletes in its sport. In general, the top athletes compete regularly at the highest level of international competition will be included in the RTP and are required to submit whereabouts to the International Federation.
Most National Anti-Doping Organizations (e.g. Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee), however, tend to establish more than one Testing Pools. Athletes included in these pools are subjected to different whereabouts requirements.
