BMAF Guide to the Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) System
The TUE system allows athletes to register prohibited substances when they have been prescribed for legitimate, therapeutic use for a medical condition. This avoids the need for disciplinary action should the substance be found during doping control. See the following.
If you are randomly selected to attend a Doping Control Test and you are not familiar with what to do, you will find very clear and comprehensive information on uka.org.uk/cleanathletics. Click on the heading “Sample Collection Procedure on the picture at the top of the screen, which is alternating with other key information, in order to watch the video “What happens during a Doping Control Test”. Do remember that you are entitled to be accompanied to the Doping Control Room, A Team Manager will accompany you if available.
