The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to remind the Canadian sport community that changes to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List came into effect on January 1, 2012. A November advisory note summarized the changes to the list of banned substances and methods (www.cces.ca/en/advisories-38).
Athletes can verify the prohibited status of their medication using the following CCES resources, all of which were updated to reflect the new Prohibited List.
• Global DRO (www.globaldro.com)
• CCES Substance Classification Booklet (www.cces.ca/scb)
• Email firstname.lastname@example.org
• Call the Info Line at 1-800-672-7775
For prescribed substances that require a medical exemption, athletes subject to doping control should consult the CCES or their international federation to get complete information on the application process.
• The CCES Medical Exemption Wizard (www.cces.ca/mewizard, formerly known as the TUE Wizard) can help athletes find out if they need to apply in advance for a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) or simply be prepared for a medical review following doping control. The wizard describes where and when to submit an application, and what to include in the medical file.
• Email email@example.com.
The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is an independent, national, not-for-profit organization. We recognize that true sport can make a great difference for individuals, communities and our country. We are committed to working collaboratively to activate a values-based and principle-driven sport system; protecting the integrity of sport from the negative forces of doping and other unethical threats; and advocating for sport that is fair, safe and open to everyone.
