The ITA investigated all Adverse Analytical Findings (AAFs) arising from the testing program as well as non-analytical findings in all cases where results management was delegated by the partners. Of the 556 potential Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs), 185 resulted in a sanction, while 196 others are still under review. In addition, 992 Whereabouts Failures (ie. athletes not fulfilling their obligation to provide timely or accurate whereabouts information for testing) were reviewed, 481 were recorded, 154 were referred to the respective National Anti-Doping Organisation (NADO) for results management and 48 are still pending – 309 were not recorded after review.
The ITA supported over 40 organisations with their respective WADA compliance assessment procedures and managed all associated Code Compliance Questionnaires (CCQs) on behalf of its partners. For the latter, the ITA provided support in answering over 10,000 CCQ questions and resolved over 250 corrective actions. Compared with the 2018 compliance procedure, ITA partners recorded 72% fewer corrective actions than before their program delegation to the ITA. Furthermore, it assisted two of its partners – the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) and the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF) – through WADA audit processes.
