The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has released the 2023 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods, which is now in effect.
The list outlines substances and methods that are prohibited in sports and is used as a reference for athletes, their support personnel, and anti-doping organisations worldwide to ensure awareness of banned substances and methods.
This year’s list includes several changes, clarifications, and amendments to existing definitions and categories.
It is important for athletes to familiarise themselves with the updated list to ensure compliance with anti-doping rules. WADA provides a number of educational resources on the Agency’s Anti-Doping Education and Learning Platform (ADEL).
