Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE) / International Level Athlete (ILA)

Listen to this page using ReadSpeaker

Athletes, like all others, may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications.

It is an athlete’s responsibility to ensure that any medication they take to treat an illness or condition does not fall under the Prohibited list.

Occasionally athletes may have to take a medication to treat an illness or condition that is on the Prohibited list. Before doing so they must apply for, and have granted by an Anti-Doping Organisation, a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) which may give them the authorisation to take the needed medicine.
