The purpose of the IOF Anti-Doping Programme is to protect the athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport.


WADA’s Anti-Doping e-Learning Platform (ADeL) offers access to all topics related to clean sport and Anti-Doping. It offers courses for athletes, coaches, doctors, administrators and anyone interested in learning more about anti-doping and protecting the values of clean sport.

Reveal Doping

REVEAL is the ITA’s platform for reporting what you have seen, heard or experienced in a completely anonymous and secure manner, while actively supporting the investigation of Anti-Doping rule violations or criminal behaviour.

Anti-Doping Rules

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

All athletes in the IOF Registered Testing Pool, and all athletes taking part in IOF Major Events (in this context: World Cup, World Championships, Junior World Championships, Regional Championships, in any of the recognised disciplines) and needing any medication/treatment that is on the WADA Prohibited list, must apply for a TUE from the IOF. Other athletes should apply to their National Anti-Doping Organisation.

The IOF has delegated responsibility for all TUE applications to the International Testing Agency (ITA). This means that the ITA is now fully responsible for the TUE application process for all international-level athletes that fall under the IOF’s jurisdiction.

More information about how, when and where to apply for a TUE can be found on the ITA’s website. 

If an athlete already has a TUE granted by their National Anti-Doping Organisation for the substance or method in question, if that TUE meets the criteria set out in the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions, then the International Federation must recognize it. For this purpose, the athlete must submit a request for recognition to the ITA to evaluate the TUE.

If you have any questions regarding applying for a TUE, the recognition process, or any other question about TUEs, please contact: [email protected]

Note: when submitting an TUE Application, all documentation must be submitted in English.
