The 2023 Prohibited List came into effect 1 January 2023. The Prohibited List identifies the substances and method’s that are not permitted in and out of competition.
The Prohibited List designates the substances and methods that are prohibited in sport. Following an extensive consultation period by WADA, the 2023 Prohibited List was published on 29 September 2022. This gives athletes and support personnel sufficient time to make themselves aware of the changes, review any medications they use on Global DRO, and apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if required before the updated List comes into effect on 1 January 2023.
