The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the 2019 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods; the 2019 Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes; and the 2019 Monitoring Program.
The 2019 list of Prohibited Substances, which was approved by WADA’s Executive Committee on 20 September 2018, becomes active on 1st January 2019.
The List, which is one of six International Standards that are mandatory for all Signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code, designates what substances and methods are prohibited both in and out of competition, and which substances are banned in each particular sport.
Motorcycling Australia (MA) members are advised to check any supplements or medications they are taking against this list and either stop using them or apply for the necessary exemptions using the Therapeutic Use Exemption process
Event Promoters and Clubs please ensure your members, riders, team managers, officials, medical staff and other support persons are aware of the Prohibited List updates and remind competitors it is their responsibility to check the status of any medication or substance prior to use.
It is important to note that not all prohibited substances are explicitly listed in the 2019 Prohibited List. For a complete check if a substance is prohibited, head to the Global Drug Reference Online (GlobalDRO) tool at www.globaldro.com.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) www.asada.gov.au
