Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE)

An athlete requiring the use of medication containing prohibited substances or methods due to a medical condition may apply for a therapeutic use exemption (TUE). The Norwegian TUE rules are in adherence with the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemption and apply to all athletes under the jurisdiction of the NOC. The requirements of the TUE rules differ depending on a categorisation of the athletes. 

These are as follows:
• International top-level athletes (participating in competitions under the jurisdiction of the athletes International federation)
• National top-level athletes (as per the “national top-level athlete list – to be found here.)
• All other competing athletes under the jurisdiction of the NOC (special rules for athletes below 15 years)

International top-level athletes shall apply to their international Federation as per their TUE rules.
