WADA publishes updated Therapeutic Use Exemption Application Form in support of the 2021 International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions

Today, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) publishes an updated template of the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) Application Form to support Anti-Doping Organizations (ADOs) in their implementation of the 2021 International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE), which comes into force on 1 January 2021. The French and Spanish versions will be published on WADA’s website in the coming weeks. 

The updated TUE Application Form has been improved to assist athletes and their physicians with the TUE application process – including detailing the diagnoses and reasons behind the request for a TUE.

The Form may be modified by ADOs to include additional requests for information; however, no sections or items may be removed including the new TUE Privacy notice. Similarly, ADOs may translate the Form into other languages; although, the existing English or French text must be retained. 

Should you have any questions regarding the Form, please feel free to contact WADA’s Medical Department at: medical@wada-ama.org.
