Protecting the Right to Participate in Clean Sport


This section provides information to athletes who are required to submit their Whereabouts to the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS).

Important Information

Dear Athletes,

UKAD has been alerted by WADA that some ADAMS users may have received illegitimate emails looking like they are originating from WADA. These emails request that the recipient click on a link and then enter some credentials, such as username, password or email address.

We want to advise anyone that uses ADAMS to be extra cautious if they receive such emails. WADA would NEVER send emails to you that asks you to validate or change your ADAMS password.

Should you receive any email of this nature please DO NOT click on the link and we kindly request that you contact WADA directly to let them know. 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
