Changes have been made to the ISSF RTP as of January 1, 2017

The 2017 ISSF Anti-Doping Rules redefined the composition of the Registered Testing Pool (RTP), which is now defined as following: 

The ISSF shall identify and maintain a Registered Testing Pool (RTP) of those Athletes who are required to comply with the whereabouts requirements of Annex I to the International Standard for Testing and Investigations, and shall make available through ADAMS, on its website and via email communication a list which identifies those Athletes included in its Registered Testing Pool by name. 

Athletes will be formally notified by email when they are added into the Registered Testing Pool and must ensure that they begin submitting their whereabouts for the next quarter as soon as possible.

If an Athlete is removed from the RTP in the following quarter he or she will also be formally notified by email before the start of the next quarter.

If you have any questions on the changes to the ISSF RTP, please do not hesitate to contact Doris Fischl at
