Inclusion Criteria

ADOHK has 2 Testing Pools: The Registered Testing Pool (RTP) and the Elite Testing Pool (ETP). Athletes being included in RTP or ETP and their corresponding National Sports Associations (NSA) will be notified by ADOHK.

The criteria for including athletes in the RTP or ETP are based on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) International Standard for Testing and Investigations (ISTI). ADOHK will regularly update the Testing Pools list based on a variety of parameters, including athletes’ latest ranking in their sports, inclusion in their International Federation’s RTP, athletes’ sport performance and sport-specific risk assessment, etc.

ADOHK shall have the final decision on the inclusion of athletes in the Testing Pools and shall not discuss the reasons for including a particular athlete in the RTP or ETP.
