WADA Prohibited List
The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Prohibited List is the comprehensive document serving as the international standard for identifying substances and methods prohibited in sport. Mandated by, and serving as a key component of, the Code, the Prohibited List is one of the most important parts of harmonization globally across the anti-doping movement. Broken down by categories, the Prohibited List identifies which substances and methods are prohibited in-competition, out-of-competition, as well as in some cases, by specific sport. The Prohibited List is updated annually following an extensive consultation process facilitated by WADA and goes into effect January 1 of each year. While the WADA Prohibited List is extensive, USADA is here to help clean athletes understand the rules and regulations set forth by WADA.
