A TUE is a form used by athletes to ask an Anti-Doping Organization (ADO) permission to use a prohibited substance.
You may create, fill and submit TUEs using ADAMS. Please note that:
- TUEs for Asthma are no longer to be used as of January 1st, 2011, following changes to the International Standard for Therapeutic Use Exemptions (ISTUE 2011). You may still need to fill a "standard" TUE if the substances you are using or planning to use for asthma appear on the prohibited list.
- It is not necessary to file a Declaration of Use as of January 1st, 2011, as there are no longer substances or methods on the Prohibited List that require a Declaration of Use.
- Also please note that you may no longer create Abbreviated TUEs in ADAMS.
As an athlete you can create a TUE yourself, but you may also opt for asking your custodian organization to enter the TUE on your behalf. You may also ask a designated Athlete Doctor in ADAMS with access to your medical file to create and submit, or complete the medical information for you; in this case you should send a formal request to your custodian organization.
