The past FIS World Cup season saw a large testing programme in close collaboration with various National Anti-Doping Agencies.
In the 2019/20 season (including the training period) between 1st May 2019 and 1st April 2020, FIS conducted 654 urine and 280 blood out-of-competition tests (379 including erythropoiesis-stimulating agents, ESAs). Regarding in-competition testing, 391 urine samples were collected. One of the key activities remains collecting athlete biological passport (ABP) samples. In total, 892 blood passport samples could be added to the programme during out-of-competition testing and 53 during in-competition testing.
Many more doping control samples were collected in the FIS Olympic disciplines under the authority of the National Anti-Doping Agencies (NADOs). These numbers are not included in the detailed FIS testing statistics below.
