From 1 January 2020, Doping Control Forms will no longer be sent by email. Instead, all Doping Control Forms will be made available to players in the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme Portal (Portal).
This is a major upgrade to protect players’ personal information and requires all players who do not have a Portal account to create one before 1 January 2020.
Note: The Portal is not the same as WADA’s ADAMS database. The Portal is an entirely separate system that has been designed by and for the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme.
What do you need to do?
If you already have an account in the Portal, then you don’t need to do anything. Simply log in to your Portal account at any time after 1 January and you will automatically have access to your Doping Control Forms.
If you do not have an account in the Portal, go to https://tennis.idtm.se and select ‘Sign up as a player’ to create an account. (If you are under 18, your parent/guardian must create an account for you, using the ‘Sign up as a parent’ option). Once your account details have been verified by the Portal Administrator, you will automatically have access to all your Doping Control Forms each time you log in from 1 January.
It is essential, for data protection, that players create their own accounts, using their personal details (email, mobile phone).
Doping Control Forms will be available (for a rolling 18-month period) sortable by date, sample type and location. You will be notified each time that a new Doping Control Form is uploaded to your account. This change applies to samples collected under the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme.
Can I create my Portal account using my agent’s (or other representative’s) details?
No, but once you create an account, you will be able to grant access to your agent/representative, simply and quickly. For your protection, only genuine agents/representatives can have access to the Portal, and so they must go through the same account creation and verification process as players.
Once you have created your own account, you can then ‘invite’ your agent/representative to create their own account and give them access to relevant communications from the Programme. This control is important if, for example, you ever change your agent/representative.
We know that agents/representatives do a lot of anti-doping administration for players, and this change helps them too. By holding a single account in their own name, they can be granted access to more than one player’s information through their own account, instead of having to log into multiple accounts.
