The WADA 2023 List of Prohibited Substances & Methods in Sports is now in effect.

The Prohibited List designates the substances and methods that are prohibited in sport.

Following an extensive consultation period by WADA, the 2023 Prohibited List was published on 29 September 2022. This gave athletes and support personnel sufficient time to make themselves aware of the changes, review any medications they use on Global DRO, and apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if required before the updated List came into effect on 1 January 2023.

Please visit UK Anti-Doping’s website here to read a summary of the changes on the 2023 List and information on Tramadol, which will be prohibited in-competition from 1 January 2024.
