What happens when I file a report?
When you file a report via the website or app, it will be assigned a case ID and you will have the option to create a secure post box for your case. Please remember to record your case ID and password in a secure location so that you can log into your post box in the future. 

Your report will be directed to the CCES Intelligence and Investigations Unit. A member of the team will carefully review the information you provide and determine the appropriate course of action. He or she may contact you via the secure post box for further information if necessary.
What is a secure post box?
A secure post box can be created through the CCES website or app when you file a doping report. It allows the CCES to communicate anonymously with the report’s creator after the doping report has been submitted. Using your case ID and password, you can log into your secure post box to add information to your report, to check for follow-up questions from the CCES, and to interact anonymously with a member of the CCES Intelligence and Investigations Unit.
How does the CCES ensure my confidentiality?
Confidentiality is of utmost importance to the CCES. We take every precaution to ensure your confidentiality.

The information contained in your report is submitted directly to the CCES Investigations and Intelligence Unit. Depending on the severity of the allegations, the information provided in your report may be shared with law enforcement agencies and/or other anti-doping agencies (e.g., WADA.)
How does the CCES ensure anonymity?
All communication with us is anonymous if you wish it to be. 

When submitting a report, you are free to provide your name and contact information or remain anonymous. 

In either case, you will have the opportunity to create a secure post box to continue to communicate with the CCES. We encourage you to open a secure post box, as it makes it safer and easier for us to communicate.

Reports are registered anonymously in the system. Only the report data itself is registered, and not the IP address or machine ID of the computer on which the report is made.
How can I correct registered information?
If you realize that you have provided incomplete or incorrect information, log in to your secure post box using your case ID and password to make the correction.

If you did not open a secure post box, make the correction by filing a new report in which you refer to the earlier report and describe what should be corrected.
