Therapeutic use exemptions

Therapeutic use exemptions

Athletes may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medication. If the medication an athlete is required to take to treat an illness or condition happens to fall under the Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) may give that athlete the authorisation to take the needed medicine.

The WADA Code enables the athlete and doctor to make this application if it is necessary for treatment to be applied using drugs or methods that are on the prohibited list.
