WADA publishes the 2016 Prohibited List

Posted on | September 30, 2015 | Category: News

On 16 September, the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Executive Committee approved the 2016 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods, which is now available on WADA’s website in English. The List will come into force on 1 January 2016.

Updated annually, the List is one of five International Standards that are mandatory for all signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code . It designates what substances and methods are prohibited in- and out-of-competition and which substances are banned in particular sports. According to the Code, if a substance or method is found to meet two of three criteria (enhances performance, poses a threat to athlete health, violates the spirit of sport), then it could be considered for placement on the List.

Languages and Formats

As of today, the 2016 Prohibited List, the Summary of Modifications, and the Monitoring Program are available for download on WADA’s website in English. French and Spanish will follow shortly.

As has been the case in recent years, the List will be made available as an iPhone app and on other mobile devices effective 1 January 2016.

The 2016 Prohibited List has been added to the IOF website Anti-Doping page
