Prohibited List


The Prohibited List contains the prohibited substances and methods, which is a cornerstone of the World Anti-Doping Code.

  • The List is updated annually following an extensive consultation process facilitated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
  • The updated Prohibited List is effective from 1st January each year.
  • The Summary of Major Modifications provides an overview of changes compared to the 2022 List.
  • Certain substances are placed on a monitoring program – these are not on the Prohibited List, but WADA wishes to monitor their use to detect potential patterns of misuse in sport.
