Athletes may have illnesses or conditions that require them to take particular medications. If the medication an athlete is required to take is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List, an approved medical exemption will provide the athlete authorization to take the medication.
Athletes can use the Medical Exemption Wizard to determine their medical exemption requirements and to download the application form if required.
Athletes are not automatically granted medical exemptions and must ensure they follow the appropriate application process for their sport, competition level, and medical treatment.
Any change in sport or competition level may result in a change to medical exemption requirements. Athletes should verify medical exemption requirements regularly to ensure they have the correct information.
