WhereaboutsFrom 1 January 2015, if you receive 3 whereabouts failures (missed tests and/or filing failures) within a 12-month period you will receive a 2-year ban. It was previously 18 months.

Any current Whereabouts strikes remain valid when the 2015 Code comes into effect.



Athletes charged with a Whereabouts violation will not be considered for a reduction in their ban if they have a pattern of last minute Whereabouts updates.

The 60 minute time slot from 1
