World anti-doping code 2006 prohibited list – what has changed
World Anti-Doping Code 2007 Prohibited List
The World Anti-Doping Code 2007 Prohibited List is effective from 1 January 2007. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) reviews the Prohibited List every year to ensure the details of the substances and methods prohibited in sport are consistent with scientific and technological developments. Changes in 2007 Prohibited List include:
• Beta-2 agonists – Salbutamol A Salbutamol concentration of greater than 1000 ng/ml will be considered an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (at this level Salbutamol will not be considered a Specified Substance). If an athlete sample reveals a concentration of greater than 1000 ng/ml and that athlete has an Abbreviated Therapeutic Use Exemption (ATUE), the athlete will need to prove that the level of Salbutamol is due to therapeutic use of inhaled Salbutamol. This applies to samples collected both In-Competition and Out-of Competition.
• Diuretics and other Masking Agents Further explanation has been provided, with the additional wording – ‘and other substances with similar biological effect(s)’ has been added to clarify that substances not listed as examples are also prohibited.
Additional examples of stimulants have been added to the list of prohibited substances. Athletes are reminded that the Prohibited List includes examples of substances prohibited; additional products with similar chemical structure or biological effect are also prohibited. A product does not have to be listed by name to be prohibited.
To provide further guidance on the requirements of Therapeutic Use or Abbreviated Therapeutic Use applications, additional examples of routes of administration for the use of glucocorticosteroids have been included. A route of administration reference table for the use of glucocorticosteroids is included in this issue of the Anti-Doping Update.
• Substances prohibited in specific sports
Chess has removed Beta-Blockers from their list of prohibited substances and billiards has removed alcohol.
• Specified substances
The presence of salbutamol above 1000 ng/ml in a sample will not be considered a specified substance. Tuaminoheptane has been added as an example of a specified substance.
The 2007 Prohibited List, Summary of Major Modifications, and details of the Monitoring List can be downloaded from the WADA website . What is a specified substance? The Prohibited List may identify specified substances which are susceptible to unintentional Anti-Doping Rule Violations, because of their general availability for medical purposes or are less likely to be abused as doping agents. Examples of specified substances include Beta-2 agonists (inhaled asthma medications) and glucocorticosteroids. Complete details of specified substances are included on the 2007 Prohibited Li Athletes are reminded to re-check the status of all medications each year, in accordance with any revisions made to the prohibited List.
