IWAS Registered Testing Pool

In compliance with the IWAS Anti-Doping Code and World Anti-Doping Code, IWAS Wheelchair Fencing has a Registered Testing Pool (RTP), a group of top-level athletes in wheelchair fencing who take part in an efficient out-of-competition testing programme.

Athletes included in the RTP are required to provide IWAS Wheelchair Fencing with accurate information regarding their whereabouts, training times, competitions and any other regular activates that they may have.

RTP Athletes must avoid committing a ‘Whereabouts Failure’. A Whereabouts Failure is either a Filing Failure or a Missed Test:

  • Filing Failure – If an athlete fails to return his/her quarterly Whereabouts Filing by the stated deadlines, fully and accurately completed, this may result in a Filing Failure.
  • Missed Test – If an athlete fails to be available for testing at the location and time specified in the 60-minute time slot identified in his or her Whereabouts Filing for the day in question it may result in a Missed Test.

Any combination of three missed tests and/or filing failures, within a twelve-month period by an athlete in a Registered Testing Pool can lead to a ban in your sport.
