About ASADA

What is ASADA? 

ASADA is Australia’s national anti-doping organisation established in 2006 by the Australian Government. Our role is to develop a sporting culture in Australia that is free from doping, and where an athlete’s performance is purely dependent on talent, determination, courage and honesty. View the ASADA Website.

Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) 

Did you know . . .

 

If you have been prescribed a medication that is on the Prohibited List you can apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). 

Athletes may at times need to use a prohibited medication to treat a legitimate medical condition.

A TUE is an exemption that allows an athlete to use, for therapeutic purposes only, an otherwise prohibited substance or method (of administering a substance). In some cases a retroactive TUE can be applied for TUE.
