Click here for a summary of the major modifications and explanatory notes.
The Prohibited List designates what substances are banned. Its annual revision process is led by WADA over an extensive nine-month consultation process which includes gathering information, circulationg a draft list, stakeholder submissions, committee recommendations and the approval of the List by WADA's Executive Committee.
It should be noted that, for athletes who have a legitimate medical reason for using a prohibited substance or method that is on the List, they can be accommodated via the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), which has overwhelming acceptance from athletes, physicians and anti-doping stakeholders worldwide.
