Speaking at the Saitama Criterium in Japan last week, Froome said that the results of the tests would be made available but declined to elaborate further on the nature of the release.
"The results will be published not long from now, before the end of the year the results of that will be published," he said.
When asked whether he, the team or a third party would release the data and in what form, he replied: "you'll have to wait and see".
Froome underwent the testing at the laboratory of GlaxoSmithKline in August 2015 after his second overall Tour win.
It was a victory that was dogged by criticism and ill feeling among some sections of media and public, particularly in France. Froome and Sky were subject to roadside abuse, with Richie Porte claiming to have been punched and Froome being the target of spitting and a fan with a cup of urine.
In response to the climate of suspicion, at a press conference on the Tour’s second rest day Froome and his trainer Tim Kerrison released data from the stage 10 summit finish to La Pierre-Saint Martin, which Froome won in convincing fashion, during the Tour.
However, it did not silence the calls for more of his data to be made public. Froome denied that the independent testing was entirely about proving his critics wrong.

"It's certainly not about necessarily proving anything, it's more about understanding, but again you'll have to wait for that and draw from it what you want," Froome added on the imminent release.
Froome also said that he didn’t believe riders should be forced to release power data, a debate which raged during this year’s Tour.
"Each to their own, if some guys want to release it that's on them," he said. "I certainly don't feel riders should be pressured into releasing anything, it's completely up to them if they want to do it or not."
