For further information regarding IWF Events and other weightlifting competitions you can always consult the Calendar on the IWF website:


Please note Article 5.6.5 of the IWF Anti-Doping Policy:

 „An Athlete who is not listed on the IWF’s Registered Testing Pool but wishes to participate in an IWF Event shall provide accurate and complete whereabouts

information as set out at Annex I of the International Standard for Testing and Investigations for a period of at least two months prior to the IWF Event in question.

If the IWF Event is a World Championship (Youth, Junior and/or Senior), then the period shall be of at least three months prior to the event in question. An Athlete

who does not comply with this provision is not eligible to compete at the IWF Event"


Therefore please make sure that the whereabouts information of your Athletes wishing to compete at IWF Events is properly submitted two months before the IWF Event

and three month before the World Championships (Youth/Junior and/or Senior) and throughout the whole competition.


Please note that this applies to Reserve Athletes as well, therefore whereabouts information of Reserve Athletes shall be provided in ADAMS too.


It is extremely crucial for them to be compliant with this rule, for otherwise they will not be able to compete.


Furthermore we herewith draw your attention once again to I.3.4 of the International Standard for Testing and Investigations: 

it is the Athlete’s responsibility to ensure that he/she provides all of the information required in a Whereabouts Filing accurately and in sufficient detail to enable any

Anti-Doping Organization wishing to do so to locate the Athlete for Testing- more specifically, 

the Athlete shall provide sufficient information to enable the DCO to find the location, to gain access to the location, and to find the Athlete at the location.


Please note that in accordance with Article 7.14 of IWF ADP 2018 Athletes shall be deemed to be validly notified if any notifications under this Anti-Doping Policy are delivered to their Member Federations.

It is therefore the responsibility of each Member Federation to notify its Athlete's of their whereabouts obligations. 

For the notification of the Athletes you may find the sample letter on the IWF website:


Please note that to register new athletes the updated „NEW ATHLETE FORM”  is available on the IWF website:   


Thank you for your cooperation in advance. 


Do not hesitate to contact us for questions.


Yours sincerely,



International Weightlifting Federation
