Athlete Biological Passport (ABP)

WADA first proposed the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP) in 2002 since the need for a more sophisticated doping control program has been emerged to fight against developing the resistance to substance and evolving the use of a prohibited method.

 Two Modules of Athlete Biological Passport:

Haematological Module: It was introduced in 2009 to identify the use of erythropoietic stimulating agents (ESA), any form of blood transfusion or manipulation. This module analyzes the ABP blood sample collection of athletes.

Steroidal Module: It was introduced in 2014 to identify the substance related to steroid doping (detects testosterone, designer steroids, anti-estrogens etc.). This module analyzes the urine sample collection of athletes.


Anyone, who has witnessed the use or attempted use of a prohibited substance;

knows the purchaser or possessor of a prohibited substance;

knows the athlete support personnel who tempted athletes to use prohibited substances or methods; or

has suspicious information can report to JADO with utmost confidentiality at




Consequences of doping

The spirit of sport is expressed in how we play true. Doping is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport. Doping is defined as the occurrence of one or more of the anti-doping rule violations set forth in Article 2.1 through Article 2.11 of  Jordan anti doping rules.  

Consequences of Doping can be physical and mental health, social and economic effects, and sanctions.

Physical and Mental Health consequences

Medications are for people with specific health issues – not for healthy athletes. These medications are not approved to be used by healthy people, in higher doses nor in combination with other substances. Taking them when your body doesn’t need them can cause serious damage to your body and destroy your athletic career. Some banned substances which athletes have also used are not medications.

Some physiological and psychological side effects of anabolic steroid include Liver Damage, Premature closure of the growth centers of long bones (in adolescents) which may result in stunted growth

Increased aggressiveness and sexual appetite, sometimes resulting in abnormal sexual and criminal behavior, often associated with depression, and in some cases, suicide. Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators may cause organ failures. Human growth hormones can cause Hypertension, Heart attacks, Thyroid problems, Severe headaches, Loss of vision, Acromegaly (Protruding or enlarged jaw, brow, skull, hands and feet),High blood pressure and heart failure, Diabetes and tumors, Crippling arthritis. Blood doping can cause Increased stress on the heart, Blood clotting, Strokes, Heart attacks, Pulmonary embolism. Stimulants can cause Insomnia, Anxiety, Weight Loss , Dependence and addiction, Dehydration, Tremors, Increased heart rate and blood pressure, Increased risk of stroke, heart attack, and cardiac arrhythmia

For Anti-Doping Rule Violations of presence or use of a prohibited substance, the basic rules are as follows:

If you intended to cheat, whatever the substance, the period of ineligibility is four years

Otherwise, it is two years – unless you can show you had no significant fault or negligence, in which case ineligibility may be reduced by up to a maximum of one year (that is, to a minimum ineligibility of one year)

If the violation involved a specified substance or a contaminated product, and you can demonstrate you had no significant fault, ineligibility may range from two years to a reprimand (depending on your level of fault)

If you can show you had no fault or negligence, the period of ineligibility may be eliminated entirely, resulting in no ban from sport

You should also be aware that multiple Anti-Doping Rule Violations, or the presence of multiple substances may increase the sanction you face beyond four years.

For some Anti-Doping Rule Violations, the penalty can be a life ban from sport.



Once logged in, click on the ‘My Whereabouts’ on your login home screen or click on ‘Whereabouts’ item in the left menu.

Follow the prompts on the ‘Whereabouts Guide’ page. Ensure all items of your Whereabouts are logged in. Your Whereabouts will show a GREEN TICK once all is compliant.

To amend an address entry, such as adding a new title or adding a room number for a hotel when known, either click on the ADDRESS BOOK and amend your entry there, or click on an entry in your CALENDAR and amend.

The test hour is the most important component of Whereabouts. It must be accurate and provide enough detail to allow doping control staff to find you with no prior notice. Make sure your test hour is in a location where you can hear the doorbell or door knock; no obstacles are in the way (dogs/security gates/inaccessible areas) and our Doping Control Officers can find you without difficulty. A missed test may be recorded against you if the Doping Control Officers can’t find you in the test hour at the location in the system.

When ADAMS asks for REGULAR ACTIVITIES insert your training routine/s into the CALENDAR (for example: gym workout, swimming session).

You can change your whereabouts information at any time online. Changes to your test hour entry can be made up to one minute prior to the test hour. If you cannot access the system to make the change, email or phone through changes to Sport Integrity Australia or ADAMS and details will be kept on your file.

You must update ADAMS even when you are on holiday. You must have accurate whereabouts for every day of the year for both home and away.

Update your mailing address, email and phone details if they change.

Update the system if any competition or training details change during the quarter. Double-click on a day in your CALENDAR for a pop-up box to enter new details, or click on an existing entry to change details.

Delete old entries in your ADDRESS BOOK if you think you no longer need them (details are retained in the CALENDAR). This makes it easier to find regularly used locations.

You can use TRAVEL entries for legitimate long-distance or overseas travel. Travel entries are regularly audited and may be investigated as possible avoidance of testing if misused (see Anti-Doping Rule Violations – Rule 3).
