Clean Sport - 2017 WADA List



What is the List? The List identifies substances and methods which you are banned from using under the anti-doping rules. It is updated, as a minimum, once a year. You must check the changes made each year so you do not inadvertently break the rules.

Remember you are solely responsible for any banned substance found in your system, regardless of how it got there, or whether there was an intention to cheat or not.

The new 2017 Prohibited List is published annually in October to ensure you and your support personnel have sufficient time to make yourselves aware of the changes, review any current medications you use and apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if required.

The World Anti-Doping Agency has announced the 2017 Prohibited List, which will come into effect on 1 January 2017.  WADA Summary of Changes to 2017 Prohibited List

Please take time to refer to the current list for reference regarding prohibited items, as the status of items you have checked previously may have changed.

Always Check Medications Check all medications before use on Where to Check Medication even if you use a regular medication. Check any medications you currently use before the List changes on 1st January 2017.

Always Research Supplements Banned substances such as Delta 2 and higenamine can be found in supplements. WADA has stated that vitamin B12 is ok to take despite it containing cobalt, which is banned. Remember, if you wish to use, or are already using supplements, you must ensure that you carry out thorough research prior to use.

No supplement product can ever guarantee it is free from banned substances. You must always assess the need, risk and consequences before making a decision to take a supplement.
