Registered Testing Pool
In order to better reflect the doping control test distribution plan carefully elaborated and prepared by the ITU, article 5.5 of the ITU Anti-Doping Rules has been reworded to include the non-exhaustive criteria applied by ITU when considering athletes for inclusion in the ITU Registered Testing Pool.
The International Level Registered Testing Pool may consist of the top ranked athletes of the official ITU World Ranking List, which is published on the ITU website and updated on a regular basis for each international event. It may also include a variety of other triathletes as defined in article 5.5.1
All Athletes designated as included in the International Level Registered Testing Pool must submit whereabouts information to ITU headquarters in accordance with ITU anti-doping rules and the WADA International Standard for Testing, unless they are already submitting whereabouts to their National Anti-Doping Organization, who in accordance with article 5.6.4 will share this information confidentially with ITU as per a formal agreement concluded between them. If you are in the ITU RTP but submit your whereabouts elsewhere, please inform us.
