If an athlete who is part of the Antidoping Centre Registered Testing Pool (RTP) intends to retire should notify the Antidoping Centre in written for its decision (see the attached form below).

In case, an athlete who has given notice of retirement intends to return to competition activity again, he/she should notify the Antidoping Centre at least 6 months prior to his/her expected return date of competition. During the period before his/her actual return to competition, the athlete shall make him/herself available for out-of-competition no-advance notice testing, and, if requested, comply with the whereabouts requirements of the International Standard for Testing and Investigations. There is a procedure for exemption to the 6 months written notice rule, for which you can learn more here
