International Testing Agency

ITA’s announcement :

Our July monthly webinar is dedicated to Therapeutic Use Exemptions.

Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) are an important aspect of anti-doping that athletes and Athlete Support Personnel need to be familiar with and understand. TUEs give athletes the authorisation to participate in sport while using a medication or method of treatment that is prohibited as per the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List.

Dr Margo Mountjoy, TUE Chair, Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and Pedro Gonçalves, ITA Science & Medical Project Manager, are our guest experts this month. They will provide answers to our most frequently asked questions on the subject, including:

  • Who should apply for a TUE?
  • Where and when can athletes apply?
  • What are the criteria for granting a TUE, and how long does it take?
  • Can I get a retroactive TUE?
  • What if I need to renew a TUE?

We will also leave time at the end to address your questions live.

As always, we are pleased to deliver these webinars in English with simultaneous translation to four additional languages – Arabic (العربي), Spanish (español), French (français) and Russian (русский).
