Prohibited List

WADA's list identifies the substances and methods that are prohibited to athletes in- and out-of-competition.

The Prohibited list is one of the key components of the World Anti-Doping Code. It provides a list of all methods and substances that are prohibited to use in-competition, out-of-competition and/or in particular sports.

The list is reviewed once a year and comes into effect on 1 January every year. The revised list is made available in October the previous year.
