IDTM was founded in Stockholm in 1991 when Staffan Sahlström began implementing an Out-of-Competition testing program on behalf of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). Staffan brought with him a wealth of expertise and knowledge gained during his time at the Swedish Sports Confederation (RF).
In 2010, Erik Johannesson, along with new majority owners, took over the baton from Staffan, investing and developing in the company to meet future needs. During this time, IDTM entered an era of digitalization, growth and increased demands in the sporting world as a whole.
In September 2018, IDTM merged with our partner company, Drug Free Sport US (DFS) continuing our mission to be a truly global service provider. By combining the industry’s two top brands with complementary anti-doping positions, collective expertise, experience, technology and resources will allow us to accomplish ANY MISSION, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE in the world. With our combined forces we will continue to create a worldwide leader with capacity to serve clients regardless of geography, sport or size. Together, IDTM and DFS can offer our clients an access to over 500 professionally trained DCOs and BCOs, covering more than 100 countries.
