Anti-Doping

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

 

Education

WADA’s Anti-Doping and 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

WADA Prohibited List webb resource contains the Prohibited List as well as the Summary of Modifications in 7 languages. A selection of Anti-Doping Rules documents in English are listed below:

 

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

What is TUE? Athletes may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take medications or undergo procedures. If the medication or method an athlete is required to use to treat an illness or condition is prohibited as per the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Prohibited List a TUE may give that athlete the authorization to use that substance or method while competing without invoking an anti-doping rule violation (ADRV) and applicable sanction. Please see the complete TUE Q&A for more info.

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

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

 

Recognition of  National TUE
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. Your request for recognition should be submitted to the ITA’s International Therapeutic Use Exemption Committee (ITUEC) Submit in writing to [email protected] quoting your ADAMS TUE reference number.

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