Retirement and Reinstatement
Athletes in the QADC RTP or QADC DTP who wish to retire from competition should notify both their NSF and QADC by completing the QADC Athlete Retirement Notification Form. Athletes are required to complete the sample collection process if QADC has not received the Athlete Retirement Notification. Failure to comply with the request to provide a sample could result in an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV).
Athletes who have given notice of retirement to QADC and their NSF may only resume competition unless they notify QADC and their NSF at least 6 months before returning to competition and avail themselves to unannounced out-of-competition testing at any time during the period before actual return to competition. Notification of their return to competition should be given to QADC and their NSF using the QADC Athlete Return to Competition Notification Form.
