Please be informed that in order to be in compliance with the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code and the International Standards, the current Whereabouts Policy (the Policy) of the Hong Kong Anti-Doping Committee (HKADC) has been revised. The newly revised Whereabouts Policy will take effect on 1 January 2021 and we would like to bring your attention to the following important changes in the requirements of the revised Policy:
Whereabouts Submission Deadlines
Whereabouts submission deadline has been changed to 15th of the month preceding the quarter. This means the deadlines for each quarter are 15 December, 15 March, 15 June, and 15 September.
Whereabouts Requirements for HKADC Testing Pools
An additional new requirement for Elite Training Pool (ETP) athletes is to provide the full address of the place where the athlete will be staying overnight for each day, i.e. the daily overnight residence.
Furthermore, athletes providing training and competition schedules or schedule of other regular activities should include the detailed address and time at least 3 days per week between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m.
