Criteria for being granted a TUE

An athlete may be granted a TUE if he/she can show that each of the following conditions are met:

  • The athlete has a clear diagnosed medical condition which requires treatment using a prohibited substance or method.
  • The therapeutic use of the substance would not produce significant enhancement of performance beyond the athlete’s normal state of health
  • There is no reasonable therapeutic alternative to the use of the prohibited substance or method.
  • The necessity to use that substance or method is not a consequence of the prior use (without a TUE), of a substance or method which was prohibited at the time of use.
