As the signatory of the “World Anti-Doping Code”, HKADC is obligated to implement a world-class testing programme in Hong Kong.

HKADC testing programme involves the setting up of Testing Pools, test planning, collecting samples from athletes, arranging for WADA accredited laboratory analysis and managing of the test results.

Sample collection can be conducted in-competition and out-of-competition with no advance notice. Athletes in the HKADC Testing Pools, who are required to submit and update their whereabouts to HKADC, are subjected to out-of-competition testing anytime, anywhere. HKADC also initiates in-competition tests at local sports events. Athletes will be informed about the testing arrangement when they register for the event.
