January 16, 2014 (Ottawa, ON) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) would like to remind the Canadian sport community that changes to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Prohibited List came into effect on January 1, 2014. A November 2013 advisory note summarized the changes to the list of banned substances and methods. View it here.
Athletes can verify the prohibited status of their medication using the following CCES resources, all of which were updated to reflect the new Prohibited List.
- Global DRO (www.globaldro.com)
- CCES Substance Classification Booklet (www.cces.ca/en/substance)

For prescribed substances that require a medical exemption, athletes subject to doping control should consult the CCES or their international federation to get complete information on the application process.
- The CCES Medical Exemption Wizard (www.cces.ca/mewizard) can help athletes find out if they need to apply in advance for a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) or be prepared for a medical review following doping control. The wizard describes where and when to submit an application, and what to include in the medical file.
