Anti-Doping Responsibilities

Sport Wales is committed to doing everything it can to make sure Welsh athletes are aware of their responsibilities so they can compete clean.

What does Sport Wales do?

We work with sports governing bodies and the statutory body responsible for anti-doping, UKAD, on appropriate education programmes so that athletes know exactly what their responsibilities are. Governing bodies must also provide athletes and athlete support personnel with information on the tougher sanctions that have been introduced.

All Sport Wales Institute practitioners undertake accredited anti-doping education as part of their work with performance athletes.

UK Anti-Doping

We work with the statutory body responsible for Anti Doping in the UK, (UKAD). UKAD is responsible for an extensive education and smart testing programme and athletes can be tested any time, any place without advance notice.

The Education programmes help athletes to understand and follow the rules. 

UKAD is responsible for making sure sports bodies in the UK are compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency Code (WADA Code). It does this by implementing the UK’s National Anti-Doping Policy. 

UKAD  provides clear information and guidelines on doping in sport in the UK, so follow these links for further information.

The Prohibited List is managed and coordinated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). Substances and methods can be added to the List at any time, but the List is updated as a minimum once a year, coming into effect on 1st January.

Therapeutic Use Exemption Forms (TUE)

The Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) process is a means by which an athlete can obtain approval to use a prescribed prohibited substance or method for the treatment of a legitimate medical condition. There are two types of TUE:

1) standard TUE - required for a Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method other than inhaled beta-2 agonists

2) TUE specifically for asthma - only required for the use of inhaled beta-2 agonists for certain products i.e. formoterol and terbutaline
