WADA Prohibited List 2022


2022 Prohibited List Update:

Introduction

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has announced the 2022 Prohibited List (the List).

The List will come into effect on 1 January 2022.

So, whilst you prepare your athletes for training and competition in 2022, take some time to become familiar with any changes to substances or methods and consider the impact this may have on athletes both in-competition and out-of-competition.

What is the List?

The Prohibited List sets out which substances and methods are banned in sport. The List is updated annually in response to scientific research and consultation with a wide range of stakeholders.

It is incredibly important that you remind your athletes to check the changes made to the List each year, so they do not inadvertently break the rules. Athletes are solely responsible for what is in their system, regardless of how it got there, or whether there was an intention to cheat or not. This is the principle of Strict Liability. Likewise, it is imperative that you are aware of any changes made to support your athletes.

Where to go for further information – Medication and Supplements

  • National Governing Bodies, Athletes and Athlete Support Personnel should use Global DRO to search the prohibited or permitted status of their medications or specific ingredients before they take it.
  • There are risks associated with the use of supplements.
  • Encourage athletes to take a food first approach. If they still choose to take a supplement, they should assess the need, risk and consequences before doing so.
  • Athletes must undertake thorough research before taking any supplement product and should only use batch-tested products. To check, athletes can use the risk minimisation tool on Informed Sport.
  • For further clarification on the 2020 List, or general substances, methods, and product enquiries, contact UKAD
