Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) are an important aspect of anti-doping that athletes and Athlete Support Personnel need to be familiar with, and understand. TUEs give athletes the authorisation to participate in sport while using a medication or method of treatment that is prohibited as per the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.
Dr Margo Mountjoy, TUE Chair, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Pedro Gonçalves, ITA Science & Medical Project Manager, are the guest experts this month. They will provide answers to most frequently asked questions on the subject, including:
- Who should apply for a TUE?
- Where and when can athletes apply?
- What are the criteria for granting a TUE, and how long does it take?
- Can I get a retroactive TUE?
- What if I need to renew a TUE?
There will also be time at the end to address questions live.
As always, the webinars are delivered in English with simultaneous translation to Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
