The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) releases updated Guidelines for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) to support Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) and other stakeholders in their implementation and application of the revised International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), which comes into force on 1 January 2021.
The new ISTUE Guidelines provide detailed information and examples for athletes, ADOs, physicians and Athlete Support Personnel to guide them when a TUE may be required to use a Prohibited Substance or Method due to an illness or a medical condition. These Guidelines have been updated in accordance with the 2021 World Anti-Doping Code (Code) and ISTUE. While the Guidelines are initially being published in English, the official French version will be published in early 2021.
