Under the World Anti-Doping Code athletes can be tested out of competition and must provide the relevant anti-doping body with information regarding their whereabouts. If an athlete is not at the nominated place at the time she or he has indicated, it is considered to be a missed test. Three missed tests within a 12-month period without compelling justification will be considered an anti-doping rule violation with the athlete facing a possible ban. While having athletes banned for refusing or missing tests may seem harsh, an examination of a variety of cases indicates that such suspensions are necessary for the integrity of the Code.
