Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE)

All athletes in the IOF Registered Testing Pool, and all athletes taking part in IOF Major Events (in this context: World Cup, World Championships, Junior World Championships, Regional Championships, in any of the recognised disciplines) and needing any medication/treatment that is on the WADA Prohibited list, must apply for a TUE from the IOF. Other athletes should apply to their National Anti-Doping Organisation.

If an athlete already has a TUE granted by their National Anti-Doping Organization for the substance or method in question, if that TUE meets the criteria set out in the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions, then the International Federation must recognize it. For this purpose, the athlete must submit a request for recognition to the IOF to allow the IOF TUE Panel the opportunity to evaluate the TUE. The request should be sent via email to the IOF Anti-Doping Officer and should be accompanied by a copy of the TUE and the original TUE Application form and supporting materials. Alternatively, these may be made available in ADAMS. If the IOF TUE Panel does not feel that the TUE meets the relevant criteria, the case may be referred to WADA for review.
