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.
