For the first time in the history of anti-doping and medication control at the Olympic Games, Post-Arrival Elective Testing (PAET) will be made available to participants in the Olympic and Paralympic equestrian events in Hong Kong.

The objective of the procedure is to minimize inadvertent medication violations at the Olympic and Paralympic equestrian events by assisting the competitors to determine whether or not residues of legitimate medications are present in urine samples collected from their competition horses immediately upon their arrival in Hong Kong.

This step in the fight to prevent positive test results is possible thanks to the commitment of the FEI and capabilities of the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) Racing Laboratory.

PAET is a voluntary testing service and is available to all competitors in the 2008 Olympic and Paralympic equestrian events.
