Under the World Anti-Doping Code (the Code) Strict Liability policy, athletes are strictly responsible for any substance found in their body, regardless of how it got there
One of the responsibilities of being an athlete is to remain informed of the status of any substance you are taking, whether its use is temporary or long-term. Athletes should check the status of any medications or substances they are using.
There are numerous anti-doping resources to help you find the latest information and policies. Ignorance is no excuse - it is up to you to stay informed.
The Prohibited List
The World Anti-Doping Code Prohibited List (the Prohibited List) identifies classes of substances and methods that are prohibited in sport.
The Prohibited List is updated every year and released on January 1st.
Even a medication an athlete is already taking could change status on the Prohibited List.
Athletes can view the Prohibited list through the WADA website at www.wada-ama.org
ASADA e-Learning is an anti-doping education tool developed for the Australian sporting community
It provides everyone with the opportunity to learn about the key areas of anti-doping such as prohibited substances and methods, therapeutic use exemptions, doping control and whereabouts.
Athletes and support personnel can complete the Pure Performance Online Course by visiting t
he ASADA website at www.asada.gov.au
Check Your Substances
An easy way for Australian athletes to check the Prohibited List is to use ASADA’s “Check Your Substances” tool.
It is available through the ASADA website, www.asada.gov.au.
Therapeutic Use Exemptions
A Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) allows athletes to use an otherwise prohibited substance for therapeutic purposes. TUEs are reviewed and approved by ASADA’s partner organisation, the Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee (ASDMAC).
Except in cases of emergency, athletes should wait until they have an approved TUE before they take an otherwise prohibited substance. ASADA recommends applying for a TUE at least 30 days before starting a course of medication.
To apply for a TUE visit the ASDMAC website at www.asdmac.gov.au
This substance is classed as an S6 stimulant on the Prohibited List and is prohibited
in-competition. Bans involving this substance can range up to two-years.
Over the past two years, there has been increasing evidence that methylhexaneamine is present in supplements and other products.
Athletes using supplements do so at their own risk. Supplement manufacturing processes can lead to their contents varying from batch to batch, therefore ASADA cannot advise if supplements contain prohibited substances.
For more information on Methylhexaneamine visit the ASADA website at www.asada.gov.au
