Doping Control

Doping Control is the headline programme of the Oceania Regional Anti-Doping Organization (ORADO). Another name for doping control is anti-doping.

The Programme Manager is Fatafehi Daunivuka of Fiji.

In technical terms, Doping Control involves sample collection, testing, results management and a suite of other procedures and activities.

As a Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (RADO) in the global ecosystem of doping control in sports, the ORADO Anti-Doping Control Programme rests on three components: Testing, Finance, Testing and Human Resources Engagement and Training. All technical activities compliant with the relevant International Standards as defined under the World Anti-Doping Code 2021 (usually referred to as ‘the Code’).

Component 1 - Testing

Component 1.(a) Finance

The ORADO Anti-Doping Programme delivers financial management with National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) by coordinating the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Testing Grant implementation in the Oceania Continent ensuring Members’ doping control programme needs are met satisfactorily.

Component 1.(b) Sample Collection

Under the technical component of Testing, the Programme coordinates test samples with User-Pay Clients to meet ORADO Revenue Targets for Sustainability. Toward this end, the Programme runs awareness and education to ensure Members understand Delegated Third Party (DTP) organisations and the Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (ADAMS) which is an online platform provided by WADA; a web-based database management system that provides information, harmonises anti-doping policies across all sports and all countries, and simplifies the daily activities of stakeholders and athletes involved in the anti-doping system. ADAMS is provided by WADA as an obligatory measure to ensure stakeholders are best enabled to implement the Code.

Component 2 - Administration

The ORADO Anti-Doping Programme delivers on reporting and compliance through its administrative activities.

It coordinates and facilitates ongoing communications with WADA through web-based tools and platforms, and collaborates with NADOs and User-Pay Clients to enhance the quality of anti-doping programmes in countries and the use of the ADAMS platform for compliance.

Component 3 - Human Resources: Engagement and Training

Under this component, the ORADO Anti-Doping Programme leads in the training and engagement of Testing personnel such as Doping Control Officers (DCOs), Chaperones, and Blood Collection Officers in the Pacific Islands’ Members of the Oceania Continent.
