The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has published its 2023 Prohibited List. The Prohibited List designates the substances and methods that are prohibited in sport.
Following an extensive consultation period by WADA, the 2023 Prohibited List was published on 29 September 2022. This gives athletes and support personnel sufficient time to make themselves aware of the changes, review any medications they use on Global DRO, and apply for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) if required before the updated List comes into effect on 1 January 2023.
Please visit UK Anti-Doping’s website here to read a summary of the changes on the 2023 List and information on Tramadol, which will be prohibited in-competition from 1 January 2024.
The following resources are also available to read on WADA’s website:
• The full 2023 Prohibited List
• The WADA 2023 Summary of Major Modifications and Explanatory Notes
• The 2023 Monitoring Programme which includes substances not currently on the List, but are being monitored by WADA for potential patterns of misuse in sport.
Bowls England recently completed the Assurance Framework, which National Governing Bodies (NGBs) must fulfil to certify to UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) that they are meeting their anti-doping responsibilities.
