PROHIBITED LIST

Since 2004, WADA has published an annual List of Prohibited Substances and Methods.

This List identifies the substances and methods:

  1. Prohibited At All Times (both In-Competition and Out-of-Competition)
  2. Prohibited In-Competition only
  3. Prohibited in Particular Sports (motor sport)

The substances and methods on the List are classified by different categories (e.g., steroids, stimulants, gene doping).

The List is updated annually following an extensive consultation process facilitated by WADA. In general, the List is valid from 1 January to 31 December.
