Human Anti-Doping - WADA Prohibited List 2023
The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Prohibited List for 2023 is now published here along with a summary of the major modifications from the 2022 List. It will come into effect on 1 January 2023.
Athletes who take regular medication/medical treatments should recheck it against the 2023 List. In case they take a medication/treatment that has changed status (is now prohibited) they should apply for a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) where necessary. Athletes should run this check with the help of their team doctor, physician and/or their National /Regional Anti-Doping Organisation.
Athlete support personnel should ensure they are familiar with the 2023 List and its changes.    
Athletes and athlete support personnel should keep in mind that:

  • Over-the-counter medication and supplements may contain prohibited substances;
  • Supplements may contain prohibited substances that are not declared in the ingredients list on the label. They may also be contaminated with prohibited substances during the manufacturing process. 

In order to understand and learn how to navigate the Prohibited List, please refer to:

Please forward this information to all athletes and athlete support personnel (coaches, team doctors, chefs d’équipe etc.) involved with your organisation. For questions please contact catherine.bollon@fei.org.
