The FAI forbids doping. The athletes who participate in competitions undertake to respect the anti- doping Rules, use neither prohibited substances nor prohibited methods and agree to submit to any anti-doping control.
THERAPEUTIC USE EXEMPTIONS
Athletes, like all people, may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take a particular medication/substance or undergo certain procedures/methods. For athletes, the substance or method may appear on World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)’s List of Prohibited Substances and Methods (List). In such instances, they may be granted a TUE, which gives them permission to take a substance or use a method. A TUE is granted to an Athlete under narrow, well-defined conditions. The TUE enables the Athlete to take the necessary medication while competing in sport events, without resulting in a doping offence. TUEs are only granted by National Anti-Doping Organizations (NADOs), International Federations (IFs) and Major Event Organizers (MEOs)- following a robust review process that is defined in the International Standard for TUE (ISTUE). In order to obtain an approval for a TUE, athletes must have a well-documented medical condition supported by reliable and relevant medical data.
