Blog: 2017 Prohibited List Released

4 October 2016

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published the 2017 Prohibited List (the Prohibited List), which will come into effect on 1 January 2017.

The Prohibited List, as well as information about major modifications to the list and additions to the monitoring program are available via the WADA website.

It is important for athletes to be aware of changes to the Prohibited List to help protect their health, career and the integrity of their sport. ASADA’s Check Your Substances (Global DRO) online tool will be updated when the changes come into effect.

The Prohibited List is the International Standard that identifies which substances and methods are prohibited in-competition, out-of-competition, and in some cases, by a specific sport. WADA leads an extensive consultative process annually that results in the updated Prohibited List. In developing the list WADA’s Expert Group considers such sources as scientific and medical research, trends, and intelligence gathered from law enforcement and pharmaceutical companies.

WADA’s monitoring program focuses on substances that are not on the Prohibited List, but are monitored to detect patterns of misuse in sport.
