Registered Testing Pool (RTP)
In the fight against doping, the anti-doping control system has a critically important role to play. These controls not only occur during competition but, in order to combat doping effectively and preventatively, also take place out-of-competition.
While any player may be randomly tested, FIBA –according to procedures outlined by WADA– largely focuses its testing on players taking part or susceptible to taking part in top-level international competition.
In accordance with WADA’s International Standards for Testing & Investigation, FIBA maintains lists of such players, which are referred to as FIBA Registered Testing Pool (RTP) and defined as follows:
"The pool of highest-priority Athletes established separately at the international level by FIBA and at the national level by National Anti-Doping Organizations, who are subject to focused In-Competition and Out-of-Competition Testing as part of FIBA's or National Anti-Doping Organization's test distribution plan and therefore are required to provide whereabouts information as provided in Article 5.6 of the Code and the International Standard for Testing and Investigations.” WADA International Standard for Testing and Investigations (2015)
