The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced the 2019 Prohibited List (the List), that came into effect on 1 January 2019.
The Prohibited List sets out which substances and methods are banned in sport. The List is updated annually in response to scientific research and consultation with a wide range of stakeholders.
You must check the changes made each year so you do not inadvertently break the rules.
You need to check any medication you use or intent to use in case you need to apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE).
Remember the principle of strict liability – you are solely responsible for any banned substances found in your system, regardless of how it got there, or whether there was an intention to cheat or not.
Check your supplements carefully – to minimise the risk use batch-tested products.
Always Check Medications:
Check all medications before use on www.GlobalDRO.com even if you use a regular medication. This should be repeated when the List changes on 1 January 2019.
Always Research Supplements:
– Remember, there are no guarantees that any supplement product is free from banned substances. You must always assess the need, risk and consequences before deciding to use a supplement.
– You must conduct thorough research of any supplement product you intend to use, and you should only use a batch-tested product
– To check you and your athletes can use the risk minimisation tool on Informed Sport.
