The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the 2010 Prohibited List which will come into effect on 1 January 2010. The Prohibited List is an international standard that outlines the substances and methods that are prohibited in sport. I encourage you and your relevant team members to familiarise yourself with the new Prohibited List to ensure your athletes are ready for the change on 1 January 2010. Please find attached a summary of significant changes for your convenience. Please pay particular attention to the following key changes. The status of salbutamol and salmeterol (used for the treatment of asthma). Therapeutic use of inhaled
salbutamol (maximum 1600 micrograms per day) and salmeterol will not be prohibited as of 1 January
Supplemental oxygen (hyperoxia) will no longer be prohibited.
The status of platelet-derived preparations (such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), ‘blood spinning’) has
been clarified by WADA. It will be prohibited when administered by intramuscular route, but other routes of
administration will require a declaration of use.
Pseudoephedrine will be reintroduced to the Prohibited List and will be prohibited above 150 micrograms
These changes are effective from 1 January 2010. If you have any questions regarding the new Prohibited List, please contact ASADA
As you may already be aware, Abbreviated Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ATUEs) for beta-2 agonists have been
Please note that all ATUEs will expire on 31 December 2009. Any athlete with an existing ATUE will need to
apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) before this time. Please see attached table which outlines which
body (either their International Federation or ASDMAC) athletes should be applying to for their TUEs.
We are expecting that ASDMAC will be quite busy processing TUE applications in the lead up to 31 December
2009, so it is strongly recommended that athletes undertake the appropriate medical tests and apply for their
TUE ASAP to allow time for the TUE to be processed. Athletes who do not have a TUE approved by 1 January
2010 will not be covered by their previous ATUE.
For more information about TUE applications, please visit the ASDMAC website at www.asdmac.gov.au or call
13 000 ASADA and press ‘4’ for ‘TUEs’.
ASADA will be conducting a comprehensive testing program in the lead up to the 2010 New Delhi
Commonwealth Games. As a part of this program, ASADA will be testing every athlete in the 2010 Australian
Commonwealth Games Team (this testing may also include shadow squad members who do not make the final

Glossary of terms TUE: athletes may at times require the use of a prohibited medication to treat a legitimate medical
condition. A TUE allows athletes to use, for therapeutic purposes only, a medication that would be
otherwise prohibited. Athletes apply to the Therapeutic Use Exemption Committee, which in
Australia is the Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee.
Declaration of use: some substances on the Prohibited List are frequently used to treat athletes’
medical conditions. Where the route of administration is not prohibited, the athlete is required to
note the use of the prohibited substance. This can be done during a testing session by noting the
use on the Doping Control Form, or it can be done by emailing email@example.com with the
sport copied in, detailing the athlete’s:
name date of birth sport address substance name of treating doctor and circumstances of use.
Route of administration: the method of using a substance. For example: nasal, oral, or local
Isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS): an analytical technique which accurately determines the
abundance of naturally occurring isotopes for a given compound.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy: removing blood from an individual’s body, spinning the blood
to make serum or plasma enriched with platelets, and injecting the platelet-enriched fluid at an
injured site to improve the body’s ability to heal and speed recovery.
