Criteria for Granting a TUE

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) gives an athlete the authorization to use a substance/method included on the Prohibited List to treat a medical condition.

A TUE will be granted only if the following criteria are met:

  1. The prohibited substance/prohibited method in question is needed to treat a diagnosed medical condition supported by relevant clinical evidence.
  2. The therapeutic use of the prohibited substance/prohibited method will not, on the balance of probabilities, produce any additional enhancement of performance.
  3. The prohibited substance/prohibited method is an indicated treatment for the medical condition, and there is no reasonable permitted Therapeutic alternative.
  4. The necessity for the use of the prohibited substance/prohibited method is not a consequence, wholly or in part, of the prior use (without a TUE) of a substance/method which was prohibited at the time of such use.
