Therapeutic Use Exemption

The Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) process is a means by which an athlete can obtain approval to use a prescribed prohibited substance or method for the treatment of a legitimate medical condition.

Do you need a TUE?

 

When to apply?

International athletes including those listed below are required to submit a TUE application to the International Triathlon Union in advance of being selected for Doping Control

  • Those listed in the National registered testing pool
  • Those in the GB Podium Potential Squad
  • Athletes in the GB paratriathlon performance squad
  • Elite senior, U23 or Junior athletes at any ITU event
  • Elite senior athletes competing at Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events.

Age group athletes and all other British Triathlon members are not required to apply for a TUE prior to competition. These athletes can make a retroactive TUE application to UK Anti-Doping following an adverse analytical finding (AAF).

Any athlete requiring a retroactive TUE has five days post the receipt of an AAF to submit a retroactive application. Typically an athlete will receive a letter by courier to confirm an AAF and inform them of the requirements to apply for a retroactive TUE for the prohibited substance detected in their sample.

To find out more about TUE applications please see the UKAD website or email cleansport@britishtriathlon.org
