Medication Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) What is a TUE? Athletes, like all others, may at times experience a medical condition that requires them to use particular medicines. The substances that an athlete may be required to take to treat a condition could fall under the List. However, by applying and obtaining a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) an Athlete may be allowed to take the necessary medicine. What are the criteria for granting a TUE and how long is it valid for? Please be informed that a TUE will only be granted if the following conditions are fulfilled: Ø that the Athlete would experience significant health problems without taking the Prohibited Substance or Method; Ø that the therapeutic use of the substances would not produce significant enhancement of performance over and above the Athlete’s normal condition; Ø that there is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of otherwise Prohibited Substance or Method; Ø The necessity for the use of the otherwise Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method cannot be a consequence, wholly or in part, of the prior use, without a TUE, of a substance or method which was prohibited at the time of use. TUEs are granted for a specific medication with a defined dosage. They are also granted for a specific period of time and therefore have an expiry date. In case of a denial from the UIPM TUE Committee the Athlete may request WADA for a review. How can I apply for a TUE? If you are an International level Athlete - competing in any UIPM competition or any competition by a Continental Confederation - you must obtain a TUE from UIPM regardless of whether you have previously received a TUE at the national level. The application for a TUE must be made as soon as possible (in case of an Athlete in the Registered Testing Pool (RTP), this would be when he/she is first notified of his/her inclusion in the pool) and in any event (save in emergency situations) no later than 30 days before the Athlete’s participation in the Event. If you have an ADAMS account, you should apply for a TUE through ADAMS, following the steps outlined on the ADAMS TUE Quick Reference card. Alternatively you may request a TUE by using the UIPM Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) form. Ø ADAMS TUE Quick Reference card Ø UIPM TUE Application Form ( pdf , doc) 2013 Prohibited List Ø Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes Ø Prohibited List Mobile & App Ø Free iPhone App The List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List), is the International Standard that designates what is prohibited in- and out-of competition. The List also indicates whether particular substances are banned in particular sports. Substances and methods are classified by categories (e.g. steroids, stimulants, gene doping). The List is updated annually, published by October 1 and comes into effect on January 1 of the following year. What are the criteria for substances or methods to be added to the List? A substance is added to the list if it meets two of the three criteria listed below: Ø The potential for enhanced performance Ø The potential for being detrimental to health Ø Violation of the spirit of sport A substance or method that has the potential to mask the use of other Prohibited Substances or Prohibited Methods can also be added to the List. Why can`t the List indicate the names of medications that are acceptable instead of listing Prohibited Substances individually? Medications are usually commercialized under different names in different countries. Even if a medication has the same brand name in different countries, it may nevertheless have a different composition (so as to conform with the relevant country`s laws on the availability of certain substances). In one country, a product may be safe to take from an anti-doping perspective, while in another country a product sold under the same name may contain a Prohibited Substance. Who can help me understand the List? Because the List refers to the scientific name of substances and to other medical terms, it may be difficult to understand for the average reader. It also includes categories of substances for which it is not practical to list all substances by name. This is why Athletes should consult with competent health professionals such as physicians or pharmacists to help determine whether the ingredients of a certain product might be on the List. Some National Anti-Doping Agencies (NADOs) offer an information service (telephone hotline, electronic mail, Internet database etc.) to help Athletes check the status of medications sold in their respective countries. A list of NADOs containing links to its websites can be found at: http://www.wada-ama.org/en/Resources/List-of-NADOs/

What are Whereabouts? Whereabouts are information provided by a limited number of top elite Athletes about their location to the International Sport Federation (IF) or National Anti-Doping Organization (NADO) that included them in their respective Registered Testing Pool (RTP) as part of these top elite Athletes’ Anti-Doping responsibilities. Why are Whereabouts important for clean sport? The Whereabouts Program prevents dopers from evading to be tested. Because Out-of-competition Doping Controls can be conducted without notice to Athletes, they are one of the most powerful means of deterrence and detection of Doping and are an important step in strengthening Athlete and public confidence in doping-free sport. Accurate Whereabouts information is crucial to ensure efficiency of the Anti-Doping programs, which are designed to protect the integrity of sport and to protect clean Athletes. Who has to provide Whereabouts? An Athlete identified in the Registered Testing Pool (RTP) by UIPM is required to provide accurate and current Whereabouts information via an online system called ADAMS. UIPM has established a RTP, chosen according to specific criteria, i.e. the World Ranking List, which Athletes are required to file individual Whereabouts on a quarterly basis for the entire year.
