As an athlete, you may have an illness or condition that requires a particular medication. If this medication appears on the Prohibited List, you may be a granted a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) which gives you permission to take it.
TUE’s ensure that you are able to obtain treatment for a legitimate medical condition even if that treatment requires a prohibited substance or method.
(The TUE process avoids the risk of sanctions due to a positive test)
Any athlete who may be subject to doping control must request a TUE before taking a prohibited medication. All information in this request remains strictly confidential.
An application must be made at least 30 days before taking part in an event. In exceptional cases or true emergencies, a TUE may be approved retroactively.
