Doping Authority Netherlands is a knowledge institute. An important way of integrating ‘knowledge management’ in day-to-day work involves the Anti-Doping Knowledge Center (ADKC), which is housed with Legal Affairs. The ADKC has proven its worth in recent years as the largest collection of doping-related documents in the world. In 2002, 756 new records were added. The total number of available documents was 8,506 on 31 December 2022. In addition, existing documents are constantly checked and improved, in part on the basis of new relevant search terms.

The information in the database consists primarily of legal documents, in particular the motivated decisions of competent disciplinary bodies relating to doping sanctions. These are mainly decisions made by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Increasingly, the ADKC also contains rulings from the disciplinary committees and arbitration bodies of international sports federations and foreign anti-doping organisations. The decisions of a few dozen international federations and countries are now being processed. For the purposes of the ADKC, there are continuous contacts with colleagues from NADOs in other countries and international federations whose rulings have not yet been included in the ADKC. The main goal of this work is to provide access to the available jurisprudence in the field of doping in order to make decisions in the future stronger.

The website also contains scientific articles about all conceivable doping-related subjects, such as educational materials and all kinds of other doping documents. This means that the ADKC also has a historical role since documents that have expired are generally difficult to find on the Internet.

The database is freely accessible through the website
